Clinical negligence: The sixth sense or spotting the plot twist?
Unusual clinical presentations can lead to civil negligence claims. This session will cover some of the more unusual cases the AOP legal team see to discuss if there were opportunities to detect them earlier.
Regulatory issues: What should I do now?
This talk covers some of the most common issues encountered by optometrists in everyday practice, and includes practical advice on how to deal with them in a way which protects the patient, the practice and the practitioner. The questions we will discuss are based on queries the AOP’s regulatory team receives from members on a daily basis, including:
- Do I need to report a patient who refuses to stop driving?
- Who is responsible for ensuring repeat tests are done?
- How do I refer patients safely?
- How can I comply with GDPR?
- What do I need to record?
Please note that these seminars are repeated throughout the year in different location and therefore points will only be awarded once.
