Peer discussion, Southampton

Where: Holiday Inn Southampton, Herbert Walker Ave, Southampton SO15 1HJ

Interactive CET points approved: 3

Peer discussion is a great way to share ideas and reflect on different approaches. You will be presented with a range of cases, clinical scenarios and ethical dilemmas to discuss in small groups with your peers.

Delegates will benefit from

  • Hearing different approaches to managing clinical situations from their peers
  • Understanding appropriate referral and management pathways
  • Recognising the importance of reflection on current and future practice

By attending one of the AOP Peer Discussions you will be fulfilling the GOC Peer Review requirement for Optometrists. These events do not cover the requirement for contact lens opticians or therapeutic specialist optometrists.

Please note that all the peer discussions in 2020 will cover the same cases and therefore points will only be awarded once.

Jane BellJane Bell, Council member

I am an independent prescribing optometrist with various roles, including chairing the Wessex LEHN (Local eye health networks) and CGPL (Clinical governance and performance leads) for Primary Eyecare Services. My particular interests are developing integrated eye health services and post graduate education to enable optometrists to fully utilise their skills and abilities.

I’d like to see the profession fully accepted as part of the healthcare family with appropriate funding for education and provision of eye health services.
