The Dental Council (the Council) is calling for expressions of interest from suitability qualified oral health practitioners to take part in Professional Conduct Committees (PCC) or Competence Review Committees (CRC) appointed by the Council from time to time. These committees play an important role in protecting the health and safety of the public.
A PCC investigates information that raises questions about the conduct or safety of the practice of a health practitioner and makes a determination or recommendations.
A CRC reviews the competence of a practitioner who holds a current practising certificate to determine whether the practitioner meets the required standard of competence.
Each committee is made up of:
- Two practitioners
- One layperson.
Cases range in complexity, so the time commitment and number of meetings in person or via video-conference can vary.
Training will be provided for all members selected. Legal and additional specialist advice is also made available to committees as needed.
Criteria for appointment:
- A minimum of five years practising experience
- Maintains a current practising certificate with no conditions
- An understanding of the practitioner competencies, the Council standards framework and recertification framework
- Awareness of obligations related to confidentiality, natural justice and privacy.
These are paid positions.
