2016 General Practitioner JulEYE Seminar – Central Coast July 18, 2016
Central Coast Day Hospital (CCDH) held an extremely successful GP Ophthalmic Education Dinner on Thursday, 07 July 2016 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.
Twenty-Four Central Coast GPs attended the evening and heard presentations from four CCDH Visiting Medical Officer Ophthalmologists.
The four Ophthalmologists spoke on their topic for 15 minutes and then fielded questions from the floor, whilst GPs enjoyed their dinner. GPs 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.
Below is a list of all the presentations:
- Dr Philip Hayes – Topical Ocular Steroid Use in General Practice
- Dr Anil Arora – “Doc, I’m Sick of Wearing Glasses” A Guide to laser vision correction and multi-focal intraocular senses for patients who want to be spectacle or contact lens free.
- Dr Doug Parker – Corneal Disease
- Dr Michael Minogue – Retinal Vein Occlusion
