It is suitable for those interested in becoming a GPWER or experienced GPs. Study Leave eligible for GPSTs.
This session chaired by Miss Stella Hornby will cover topics relevant for continuing professional development for general ophthalmologists, GPs with a special interest in ophthalmology and Optometrists with an extended role. There will be a mixture of relevant CPD on clinical practical ophthalmology as well as on clinical commissioning and elective transformation of patient pathways. Clinical topics this year will include updates modern management of dry eye, central serous retinopathy and how to diagnose and triage pigmented choroidal lesions. We will also cover the role of the clinical council for commissioning eye health, how to manage demand for emergency eye services and how to reduce unnecessary referrals for choroidal naevi. We will round the day off with a series of interesting cases - the ever-popular ‘Hornby’s Odd Ball Eye Cases’.
The style will be friendly and interactive and would be relevant to any doctor (trainee or not) and/ or optometrist who sees general ophthalmology patients in a community or hospital setting and delegates will be encouraged to join in the discussion with questions or comments from their own experience. There is a good opportunity for networking in the coffee and lunch breaks.
