2015 JulEYE General Practitioner Ophthalmic Education Evening
July 20, 2015
Central Coast Day Hospital (CCDH) held an extremely successful GP Ophthalmic Education Dinner on Thursday, 09 July 2015 at Mingara Recreation Club, Tumbi Umbi. 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-Five Central Coast GPs attended the evening and heard presentations from seven CCDH Visiting Medical Officer Ophthalmologists.
The seven 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. 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 the GP community.
