2014 JulEYE General Practitioner Ophthalmic Education Evening July 21, 2014
Central Coast Day Hospital (CCDH) held an extremely successful GP Ophthalmic Education Dinner on Thursday 10 July 2014 at The Crowne Plaza, Terrigal. The evening was a resounding success with 100% of the GP’s advising that they learnt from the ophthalmologists’ presentations enabling them to keep up to date with the latest developments in clinical ophthalmology.
Thirty-Six Central Coast GP’s attended the evening and heard presentations from seven CCDH Visiting Medical Officer Ophthalmologists. You can find our Ophthalmologists presentations below:
Dr Anil Arora – Everything a GP needs to know about Laser Vision Correction
Dr Colin Clement – The General Practice Glaucoma Survival Guide
Dr Phil Hayes – Neuro-ophthalmology – A Cautionary Tale
Dr Doug Parker – Dry Eye
Dr Brad Townend – Eye Nutrition
Dr Andrew White – What’s new in Glaucoma
The seven Ophthalmologists spoke on their topic for 15 minutes and then fielded questions from the floor, whilst GP’s enjoyed their dinner. GP’s were able to self-record their attendance and were also eligible to receive 4 RACGP points for the evening.
All present felt that the evening helped build closer professional GP referrer relationships and raise the awareness of CCDH as a centre of excellence in ophthalmology. CCDH looks forward to providing the evening again next year during JulEYE as part of our efforts to raise awareness of eye health promotion and improved ophthalmic clinical education to our referrer GP community.
