Discussion workshop: Save Dave
This discussion workshop session will be run as an educational escape room. Delegates will work in groups to find the code that will save Dave and save the day. Dave, the locum optometrist was looking for the disposable tonometer heads in the store cupboard when the door closed behind him and he became trapped. Practice owner, Rishi, had installed a new electronic keypad lock on the store cupboard, just before he left for his golfing holiday in Portugal. The practice staff have been unable to reach Rishi to obtain the code they desperately need to unlock the door so Dave is ready for the first patient of the day. The staff have found a folder of anonymised patient cases that Rishi, a renowned game enthusiast, appears to have used to create the lock code. Now its up to the team to delve into the cases to crack the code, and with just one hour before the first appointment of the day, time is ticking down… Can they save Dave and save the day? Cases will include paediatric dispensing in relation to facial data, managing a young adult with low vision, and considerations for dispensing progressive spectacle lenses and multifocal contact lenses to a patient with presbyopia. By working through each case, delegates will obtain three codes which together will provide a final lock code.
Practitioners will identify how to interpret paediatric facial data to guide the frame fitting process
Practitioners will identify low vision management options based upon patient need
Practitioners will identify suitable spectacle and contact lens options for managing patients with presbyopia
Practitioners will recognise the importance of establishing patient circumstances to guide management in cases of low vision
Practitioners will recognise the importance of establishing patient circumstances to guide spectacle and contact lens management in cases of presbyopia.
