Thank you very much for your continuing support of our OOB-accredited CPE programmes over the last 4 years.
2019 will see a change in the chairmanship of the CPE programme. Ms Lee Hui Xin Leanne who ran the programme for 2 years has relinquished this post to focus on the Singapore Primary Eye Care Symposium (SPECS). I have taken over from Leanne from 1 January 2019.
Moving into 2019, we will continue to organise CPE lectures that will help primary eye care professionals update and upgrade their clinical knowledge and skills. Since 2018, a minimum of 40 points for opticians and 50 points for optometrists over a 2-year period have been made compulsory by OOB before one’s practising licence can be renewed. We want to ensure that primary eye care professionals will have more opportunities and options to learn and maintain their level of competence for licence renewal. In this regard, if you have any idea and suggestion for CPE lecture topics or to improve the current system, please drop us a note at our email address email@example.com. If you are an optometrist who is keen to share your knowledge with your fellow colleagues, please let us know too.
Lastly, all OOB-approved CPE organisers who wish to put up their programmes for online registrations on this portal can also contact me at the same email address.
I wish you all the best on your learning adventure!
