2021

Virtual Meeting


by Zoom - Wednesday 06th Oct (pm) and Friday 08th Oct (am) 2021

 

Message from BIPOSA's President

 

BIPOSA'S virtual event will take place over two half days - paediatric ophthalmology (Wednesday afternoon) and  strabismus (Friday morning). We are hoping to host the Bristol 2022 meeting as originally planned face to face and the London Meeting is postponed until October 2023.

 

Following the success of our recent monthly webinar programme we very much hope that the virtual meeting in autumn 2021 will be of value and interest to our members and attendees.  The virtual meeting is free for BIPOSA members and there will be a charge for all non-members.

 

We look forward to welcoming you!

 

Mike Clarke

BIPOSA President

CPD and certificates

Focus is on reflection and discussion and there should now be much less emphasis on the collection of evidence.   Ophthalmologists and orthoptists are now encouraged to record their learning and development through self-certification. The overarching principle remains that one CPD point is allowed per hour of educational time, excluding breaks, for attendance at events and for teaching.

 

CPD is based on self-reflection and our certificates are not proof of attendance more a personal record. If you would like a certificate template please download, save to your local machine add in your name. We will not email certificates.
