What's New

CET points for C-36042

Please note: the CET for 'The Ageing Eye: Physiology & Pathology - Ocular' (C-36042) has now been made interactive (rather than non-interactive as originally advertised). This change is due to an error with the original GOC CET approval process. You will need to pass the MCQs and then carry out a short interactive exercise to earn 2 interactive CET points. Go to the CET Zone to watch the programme online and complete the CET.

 
Safeguarding Children: CET reissued (now C-36038)

Safeguarding Children: CET reissued (now C-36038)

DOCET's Safeguarding Children (Level 1) e-learning module has been reissued with a new CET reference number (C-36038) from 16 April 2014. 1 CET point (non-interactive) available. Go to the CET Zone to access the training module.

 

'Flashes & Floaters' updates

Some revisions have been made to the 'Referrals & record keeping' chapter of the 'Flashes & Floaters' film and supporting 'Key information' document. To avoid possible confusion, the section advising referral 'within a week' has been amended to suggest that optometrists should 'consider referral'. Optometrists are advised always to be aware of protocols in place locally where they practice. 'Flashes & Floaters' is available in the CET Zone.

MyGOC - allocation of CET points in 2013/2014

MyGOC - allocation of CET points in 2013/2014

Feb 2014: please be aware that some 2014 points were allocated on the GOC system as 2013 points, even though they were uploaded by DOCET in 2014. The issue is being investigated by the GOC's system developers in order to fix it. In the meantime we will continue to upload points correctly for 2014. If you have any queries about the year to which points have been allocated on your MyGOC account please contact the GOC directly.

 

Peer discussion and facilitation materials for optometrists

DOCET has launched a range of peer discussion and facilitation materials for optometrists. Includes free case studies, facilitation skills training and guidance and template documents to use. Full details in the Peer Discussion area.
