College Peer Discussion Event To Use Voting Pad Technology


CoO

The following message is from the College of Optometrists:

Your next free member CET event in the West Midlands region will take place in Coventry on Thursday 22 January 2015 from 6pm.

We are pleased to introduce a new and exciting approach to our peer discussion events taking place in the 2014/15 cycle.

Using filmed ethical scenarios, attendees will have the opportunity to watch different cases acted out on screen, before discussing them with colleagues. An audience voting system popularised by the ‘ask the audience’ section of Who Wants to be a Millionaire will be used.

The discussions will be supported by a trained facilitator and based around a series of College case studies.

A finger buffet will be available at the start of the event, giving you an opportunity to network with colleagues and College representatives. The events remain free of charge for College members.

All members are welcome to attend, irrespective of whether you have attended a peer discussion before. The type of CET and number of points will be confirmed shortly.    

Expected timings:

6pm                    Registration and catering
6.45pm               Welcome and College talk
7pm                    Filmed scenarios and Peer discussion – Batch 3 (case studies on confidentiality, wrong prescription and a poorly performing colleague)
9.30pm               Close

CET points available: 3 interactive points
Competencies covered: Communication, Professional conduct and Ocular examination
