The outcomes document from phase 2 of consultation has been issued.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the consultation proposals for improving our approach to recertification. Your input has been invaluable, and it has, and will continue to inform and guide the decisions we make to improve our approach to recertification.
We issued the outcomes document on 22 March 2019. This document details Council’s consideration of submissions received, confirms that the proposals will be adopted (some with refinements) and outlines next steps.
Dental Council staff have now started developing the operational framework required to implement changes for Council to consider in the next few months. The work programme being developed will concentrate on the necessary refinements to the proposals that aim to:
address respondents’ requests for further detail, templates and guidance for practitioners
identify the mechanisms required to establish and implement the proposals
identify the key actions and timeframes required to begin rollout of our new approach to recertification in 2020
include a communications plan for managing the change process.
The recertification page on the Dental Council website has also been updated with additional information.
