On the record: team under pressure – new AOP legal film

04 Dec 2017

Building on the success of our first legal film drama in 2016, we’ve launchedOn the record: team under pressure, a new film looking at optical work-based issues.  

From the film, members will learn about complying with the requirements of GOC registration and how to more easily meet legal obligations in practice. It also offers advice in managing stress and dealing with heavy workloads. The drama is followed by a discussion between our Legal and Regulatory Services Director, Gerda Goldinger and, Assistant Director of Legal and Regulatory Services, Fiona Mitchell. 

Commenting on the film, Gerda Goldinger said: “Last year around one in four members phoned to seek advice from the AOP's in-house legal and regulatory team – the concerns raised in this film are just some examples of the types of matters we manage daily. Almost all members will face one of these issues at some point in their career, which is why having advice that is readily available and easy to access is invaluable.”  
  
The film, offering one non-interactive CET point, can be viewed online from 4 to 27 December 2017 and then from 2 January to 29 June 2018. 

There is also an opportunity to gain one interactive CET point by attending sessions at the Eyecare Conference, 21 January 2018, or at 100% Optical, 27 January 2018. The film will be shown at these events and followed by a live question and answer session with the AOP legal team.     

A trailer for the film is available to watch below. The full length film is available online.
