Individual Peer Review (previously known as Appraisal) Overview

It is envisaged that Individual Peer Review (IPR) will become embedded in the ethos of the profession to provide a means of assisting dental registrants to establish their current educational and personal development thereby underpinning a needs based postgraduate educational service and not solely as a means of satisfying, as yet unknown, revalidation requirements. Using the GDC Standards for Dental Professionals, Dental IPR has continued to be reviewed over the years. The 4 Domains of Clinical Care, Management and Team Leadership, Communication and Professionalism remain the thread running through the process to keep on track with the prospect of Revalidation in the future.

HEENW have created a workbook to assist in the Dental IPR process and the creation of a Personal Development Plan (PDP). The workbook has been designed to be relevant to all dental professional fields of practice – Primary and Secondary Care dental registrants.  The workbook can be utilised for the creation of a PDP and can be used either independently or as part of a one to one meeting with a HEE trained facilitator in line with GDC enhanced CPD (https://www.gdc-uk.org/professionals/cpd).

Please return the summary of your future CPD requirements and feedback forms to dentalappraisal.nw@hee.nhs.uk whether or not you have completed the workbook independently or within 2 weeks if you have completed the workbook as part of a one to one meeting.  Upon receipt, a CPD Certificate will be issued to the registrant.

Your feedback is important to us to ensure the quality of Individual Peer Reviews and to enable HEE to provide needs led education and training courses.
