2015 General Practitioner Ophthalmic Education Evening

The Epping Surgery Centre (ESC) once again held an extremely successful GP Ophthalmic Education Dinner, to coincide with the RANZCO Eye Foundation JulEye public health promotion. The dinner was held on Thursday 23 July 2015 at The Epping Club in Epping. 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.

Twelve  Northern Suburb’s GP’s attended the evening and heard presentations from seven ESC Visiting Medical Officer Ophthalmologists.

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. ESC 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 the GP community.
