About the event

This online dedicated therapeutics peer review session is open to College members who are qualified independent prescribers or studying for an IP qualification. The session will cover your GOC peer review requirement and is worth three interactive CPD points.

At this online session, you will join a large group for an introduction and then participate in a small, virtual group to review three cases.

The introduction session will be conducted by a lead facilitator and each small group will be led by an experienced facilitator. The cases are bandage contact lens fitting, acute painful red eye, painful red eye in a patient with keratoconus.

The content of this session is a repeat of those on 13 December 2023 and 15 February 2024. 

If you have added yourself to a waiting list, please ensure you remove yourself from it if you end up attending the event on another date.
