Online peer review for general optometrists



Where: Online

Interactive CPD points: 3

Peer review 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 review. Multiple bookings will be removed.


There are three interactive CPD points approved for this peer review.

To be eligible for the CPD points you need to attend for the duration of the meeting and be able to participate in interactive polls.

You will not be eligible for the CPD points if you dial in to the audio only using a telephone.

These events do not cover the requirement for contact lens opticians or optometrists with specialty registration.

By attending an AOP peer review you will be fulfilling the GOC’s peer review requirement for optometrists.
