Professional Duty of Candour - new FODO CET packs available for members


Following on from our successful workshop at Optrafair earlier this year, we are delighted to now make available this new peer discussion CET pack on the Professional Duty of Candour, which has been approved for 3 GOC CET credits for both optometrists and dispensing opticians. 

This training will enable participants to explore the implications of the Professional Duty of Candour for optical professionals on day-to-day practice, focusing on regulation and guidance, managing and communicating with patients when things have gone wrong, and record keeping. Discussions are based around four scenarios covering different aspects of candour. 

The new packs include the following resources:

  • Professional Duty of Candour at a Glance
  • Briefing Sheet and Instructions for Facilitators
  • Scenarios
  • Notes for Participants
  • Sign in Sheet
  • Reflection and Learning Sheet – Facilitator & Participants
  • Participant Feedback Sheet

These packs are available to FODO members by contacting Rajan at Rajan@fodo.com for myGOC log-in details. You should also contact Rajan if you want any further information about FODO CET.
