CET sessions from FODO at Optrafair 2018

FODO is running three CET sessions at this year’s Optrafair (14-16 April) in Birmingham, where they will also be exhibiting.

These are shown below:

The Duty of Candour and How to Apply it in Routine Practice

Saturday 14 April, 11.45 – 12.45 PEER DISCUSSION
Leader: Richard Edwards

Details: Following publication of the GOC Standards in 2016, the profile around the Duty of Candour has risen. Understanding what this means for optometry and how to comply with the changes is key. Supporting the launch of FODO’s easy reference guide ‘Candour at a Balance’, in this interactive peer discussion, Richard Edwards uses case studies to explore key discussion points, encouraging delegates to think about and test how they meet new regulator expectations.

Information Governance and Management
Saturday 14 April, 15.30 – 16.30 DISCUSSION WORKSHOP
Leader: Bhavina Patel

Details: Data protection rules are changing at a rapid pace, with real implications for optometry. Under new regulations, expectations regarding information governance have risen dramatically. In this discussion workshop, Bhavina Patel uses case scenarios to allow delegates the opportunity to discuss the effect of the changes amongst peers and to find out whether they are compliant with the changes. Learn what all the fuss is about and pick up some tips along the way.

Consent in Routine Practice
Sunday 15 April, 10.30 - 11.30 PEER DISCUSSION
Leader: Richard Edwards

Details: Following publication of the GOC Standards in 2016, the profile around the Duty of Candour has risen. Understanding what this means for optometry and how to comply with the changes is key. Supporting the launch of FODO’s easy reference guide ‘Consent at a Balance’, in this interactive peer discussion, Richard Edwards uses case studies to explore key discussion points, encouraging delegates to think about how they meet new regulator expectations.

All of the sessions are worth 3 CET points and will be held at the ABDO CET theatre (B40).

Please note: There is no registration, with places being allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. We do hope to see as many FODO members as possible at these events.

Optrafair will take place between April 14 and 16 at the NEC in Birmingham. For more information, and to register for the event, visit www.optrafair.co.uk/register
