Pacific Dental Conference 2018

Posted Date: 3/6/2018

Join the Registrar and other College Staff Representatives at the CDHBC Forum Thursday March 8, 2018, 9:00-11:30am Ballroom B VCC East.

CDHBC Forum: During this year’s forum, the College will be unveiling its new Mission Statement, Values Statements and Strategic Goals. In addition, the Registrar will speak to the Quality Assurance Program (QAP) Evaluation Report which will be released on Wednesday, March 7th. The Registrar will provide highlights of the newly designed Jurisprudence Education Module (JEM). Other topics to be covered include an update on the Regulation and Bylaw Proposal, details of the most recent discipline hearing, and other important regulatory topics both inside and outside dental hygiene.

Registrants attending the Forum may claim hour-for-hour continuing competency (CC) credits. This activity would fall under Content Category F.1 - Ethics & jurisprudence.

PDC Continuing Competency (CC) Credits:

  • Registrants may claim hour-for-hour credit for attending PDC courses related to their professional dental hygiene practice.  

  • Registrants may claim 2 credits for attending the PDC exhibition hall. Please note there is a maximum credit allowance of 12 credits per cycle for attending any dental/dental hygiene related conference exhibition hall. 

  • All learning activities should be recorded within each registrant’s Online Learning Plan. The reflection completed for each learning activity, whether attending the PDC exhibition hall or attending individual PDC courses, should reflect the knowledge gained and application to dental hygiene practice.

PDC Course Coding: The College has once again collaborated with the Pacific Dental Conference (PDC) staff to include a coding system within the PDC Conference Program to assist with identifying links between your learning goals and the PDC sessions. In the PDC program, you will notice that each dental hygiene-related session has been coded with a letter-number code (e.g. D.3.) corresponding to one or more specific CDHBC QAP content categories (e.g. Non-surgical dental hygiene therapy). It is important to note that these codes are suggestions only, and you are required to use your professional judgment when selecting courses and determining which QAP content categories the course addresses.
