Done your Peer Review yet?

Have you completed a Peer Review yet? They are a great way to learn, and worth 3 interactive CET points.

If you're struggling to find a Peer Review event near you or if you just want to do more, did you know you can run one yourself? You can apply to run a registrant-delivered Peer Review session with other local optometrists (or DOs) from your MyCET account. You'll need at least 3 peers to join you. You need to decide on a topic, write a CET application, prepare your own records for discussion and upload evidence to the GOC after your event.

If that all sounds a bit too much like hard work, why not download one of Eyecare's self-service Peer Review packs from cetpoints.com? They contain everything you need to run a Peer Review workshop. There's a facilitator pack with instructions on how to organise the event, extra notes on each of the cases and all the paperwork you'll need. There's also a delegate pack with case records, a reflective statement and a CET article summarising the outcomes of the discussion. You'll still need 3 peers to join you but everything else is taken care of. Just download the files, let us know, in advance, where and when you're doing the event, follow the instructions and fill in and return the paperwork at the end. We'll do everything else. It's worth 4 CET points (3 interactive) and counts towards your Peer Review requirement.

Peer Review packs are included in an annual subscription to cetpoints.com.

You can search for new Peer Review packs at any time by typing "Peer Review" into the search bar at cetpoints.com
