OBA Proposes CPD Changes

The Optometry Board of Australia has announced that it is undertaking a public consultation process on proposed amendments to its continuing professional development (CPD) registration standard and guidelines on CPD for endorsed and non-endorsed optometrists.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column]

Key changes proposed for the CPD registration standard and guidelines are:

1. The incorporation of a two-year rollover for requirements

2. The removal of the exemption for new graduates

The Optometry Board of Australia has announced that it is undertaking a public consultation process on proposed amendments

3. Simplification of activity types to increase clarity and understanding for optometrists

4. Incorporation of amendments into the guidelines previously considered by the Board in the development of the CPD FAQs or CPD provider manual

5. The review of the classification of activity types to ensure emerging technologies can be incorporated into the accreditation process without revising the standard or guidelines

6. The removal of the national office of the Optometrists Association of Australia from the approved provider list, indicating that activities provided by this office will be accredited by the CPDAC.

For details, visit www.optometryboard.gov.au.

Written comments on the content of the amendments to the standard and guidelines must be submitted to Mr. Colin Waldron, Chair, Optometry Board of Australia by close of business on Friday 18 May 2012. Electronic submissions are preferred and can be made at optomconsultation@ahpra.gov.au
