Optometrist Credits: Not yet accredited.
Event Type(s): Conference
Name: Alex Petty
Number: (07) 571 6644
The format of the evening will have three components:
• a presentation from one of the ophthalmologists in attendance (TBA)
• Sharing of cases from the attendees.
This format relies on the participation of attendees. All optometrists present will be encouraged to prepare a short 5-10 minute presentation (ideally with powerpoint or OCT/ Photos/ Topography/ Visual Fields - please bring on flashdrive) of a case(s) from their clinic that was interesting/ challenging/ unusual. In short something that we can learn something from. An ideal format would be as follows:
• Clinical Findings
• Differential Diagnosis
• Discussion (ideally with clinical pearls or information from the literature related to the condition/case)
Following each case, discussion from the audience is encouraged. This is not a chance to grill/critique the optometrist that is sharing the case, but rather to learn more about a presentation of an eye problem in order to educate us or when we may need to do to manage something similar.
CPD points will be applied for and if you present you are eligible for additional CPD points for being a presenter.
Have a think about the interesting cases you can remember over the last 6 months and plan ahead of time to have something to share.
It is expected that the evening will go until 8pm. If we run out of time then attendees who have not had a chance to share their case can save it for the next CPD Forum three months later.
