Register for the ‘Introducing a Tool for Dental Nurses to Observe Non-Technical Skills (DNOT)’ webinar on 22 May from 19:00 – 20:00 BST and learn about the purpose of using an assessment tool in a variety of learning and development environments. This tool is intended to assist clinicians to reflect on their non-technical skills and to consider the behaviours that promote enhanced patient care, patient safety, team inclusivity and participation.

 The DNOT taxonomy is aligned to the DeNTS taxonomy (Non-Technical Skills for Dentists) and is a framework for dental nurses to assess the non-technical skills of the clinicians with whom they are working. This webinar will therefore be of interest to Dental nurses, both in primary and secondary care, who are able to make valuable contributions to improving clinical performance, risk management, and enhancing patient safety. 

By taking part in this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Explain when to use the assessment tool
  • Describe how the tool supports learning and development
  • Use the assessment tool in clinical situations

1 CPD hour will be awarded for completing this session.
