CUSPID - Clinically Useful Safety Procedures in Dentistry: Volume 1 and Volume 2.

This clinically oriented and illustrated textbook of over 1,600 pages published on the 1st August 2018 to coincide with the General Dental Council's introduction of Enhanced CPD for all dental registrants; now provides every member of the dental team with the means to easily undertake and complete ECPD in line with the GDC's requirements for outcome C: Developing and maintaining knowledge and skills in dental practise.

In the two volumes of CUSPID: Five safety critical subject areas are systematically presented:

CUSPID Volume 1:

Chapter 1: Medical Emergencies.
Chapter 2: Medicine and Drug Safety.

CUSPID Volume 2:

Chapter 3: Infection Control.
Chapter 4: Radiation Safety.
Chapter 5: Oral Cancer.

All GDC registrants from the vocational trainee, to the experienced practice principal leading a clinical team can use the 2 volumes of CUSPID to complete their ECPD. Furthermore, the essential roles of all dental care professionals are comprehensively recognized in this textbook. Dental colleagues who are certainly well-experienced but at times under-appreciated and often over-worked; nurses, technicians, therapists and hygienists can use CUSPID to achieve their ECPD goals.

By answering the 650 multiple choice questions and participating in Peer Review, some 80 hours of ECPD can be claimed and verified by completing the certificates and log sheets at the end of each of the 5 chapters. For dentists, this forms the core of the ECPD required by the GDC: 80 hours out of the 100 hours required in the 5 year ECPD cycle. For other dental registrants, by using CUSPID; the ECPD achieved can significantly exceed the 75 hours required for clinical technicians, hygienists and therapists, or the 50 hours required for technicians and nurses to complete their respective 5 year ECPD cycles, securing their registration with the GDC.

Carrying out the reflective reviews at the end of each chapter forms the foundation upon which a Professional Development Portfolio can be based, adding further to the ECPD totals which can be gained from CUSPID.

In addition to ECPD, learning from CUSPID provides an opportunity to achieve a solid working knowledge of the safety critical disciplines required for safe clinical practise.

Using both volumes of CUSPID ensures you are not only working safely, you are doing so in accordance with the most recent evidence based clinical guidelines; in line with the GDC's requirements for ECPD for every dental professional from August 1st 2018 onwards.
