Online peer discussion, October



Where: Online

Interactive CPD points: 3

Peer discussion is a great way to share ideas and reflect on different approaches. You will be presented with three cases to discuss in small groups with your peers.

Delegates will benefit from:

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

We restrict numbers at these events to ensure the best experience. To allow everyone the opportunity to attend, please only book to attend one peer discussion. Multiple bookings will be removed.

Please note that this event will only take place if the GOC continues to allow delivery of CET virtually. If this changes, we will be in touch as soon as we can.
