A Guide to Laboratory Investigations
Health professionals at all levels are now expected to approach their continuing professional development in a more systematic way. This book shows what individuals and workplace teams can do to identify their own learning needs and draw up and prioritise their own action plans. This book is based on the highly successful Making Clinical Governance Work for You but has been contextualised specifically for dentists and their teams. Presented in a simple and practical style it shows how to integrate quality improvements into everyday work. It is an essential book for the primary dental care team and will help underpin individual and team based professional development plans and revalidation which will make a positive contribution to their organisation's business plans. It bridges the gap between theory and practice and between 'thinking and doing' and it will benefit all dental healthcare professionals and undergraduates.
