About the event

This online peer review session is open to College members and will cover your GOC peer review requirement. It is worth three interactive CPD points.

At our 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 Headaches, Duty of Candour, and Paediatric red eye. 

The content of this session is a repeat of sessions which took place on 9 February, 5 May and 3 August. Please be mindful of this as you cannot claim the CPD more than once.

A wonderful way of seeing how optometrists across the country would deal with the kind of patients we saw in the case studies. It’s particularly helpful for newly qualified members like myself.
