The Optometry Board of Australia (the Board) has launched their CPD Survey. To let the Board know how they can help practitioners meet the CPD standard please complete this short anonymous CPD survey.
The Board along with four other National Boards has developed a revised continuing professional development registration (CPD) standard that will come into effect on 1 December 2020. The Board is seeking optometrists’ feedback about how they undertake CPD and how the Board can help practitioners meet the standard.
The revised CPD registration standard requires optometrists undertake at least 20 hours of CPD each year that seeks to improve patient outcomes and experiences, builds on knowledge and draws on best-available evidence. Optometrists must also maintain a portfolio of learning goals and CPD activities and record reflections on how CPD will or has improved their practice.
The survey is open until Sunday 4 August 2019.
