DOCET provides these free template forms which optometrists organising and facilitating peer discussions are welcome to download for their own use.
Patient case record
DOCET has developed this 'best practice' template record. It can be downloaded and used to create your own example case records (good and bad!) for use in peer discussion. It may also be used in everyday practice.
Reflection on learning: participants
It is helpful to ensure that participants write some notes at the end of every peer discussion session, reflecting on what was covered, what they have learned, and what might influence their future practice and patient care. DOCET's template reflecting on learning form is structured to mirror the form optometrists must complete on 'MyGOC'.
Reflection on learning: facilitators
It is also important for facilitators to complete their own reflection on learning notes, to capture their thoughts on how the session went, what they covered and what they learned. DOCET's template form can be used for this purpose.
Evaluation and feedback
DOCET's template form which can be downloaded and used to gather constructive feedback to help you plan future peer discussion events. It can be adapted as required for your own use.
You may wish to insert details of the specific learning objectives for your peer discussion in the 'Objectives' section of the form, so that participants can tell you how well they feel these were met.
Please use this template form and/or adapt it as necessary. Organisers may use their own delegate list in a different format, but for best practice it should include as a minimum the same information as the DOCET template.
