College coffee break for therapeutic optometrists

This online coffee break session is open to College members who have the Diploma in Therapeutics (Independent Prescribing).

This informal session is aimed at helping our members stay connected during this unique time. We are encouraging all IP members with varying levels of experience to share their experiences and best practice. There will also be the opportunity to pose questions to our Director of Education, Sally Gosling.

Following an introduction from the College, you will be split into smaller groups for a 45 minute discussion. Groups will include newly qualified and more experienced IP practitioners. The session will then conclude with a Q&A with Sally. We will be encouraging all delegates to share their webcam when you are split into the smaller group but this is not compulsory.

You may wish to have an interesting or challenging case to hand to exchange thoughts and ideas with others in the group. You may also be keen to discuss if COVID-19 has changed the way practice as an IP optometrist.

Please note these sessions do not provide CET points.

If you have any queries, please email
