We’re Adding to our Library

February 2, 2017


dreamstime_s_51326062In mid-February, we will be launching a new Self-Assessment Module (SAM) and a new Performance in Practice Module (PPM). Our goal is to add 4-6 new modules per year, and these are our first additions for 2017. Here is a brief overview of each new module.


This Pediatric PPM is based on the soon-to-be-published American Optometric Association (AOA) Comprehensive Pediatric Eye and Vision Examination Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPG), and uses records from patients aged 2-16 years old. This PPM will allow Diplomates to measure and compare their current clinical practices related to two evidence-based action statements from this CPG, representing state-of-the-art professional care, and determine if and how to make improvements in the quality of their patient care.


Titled “Office-based Anesthesia for Optometric Surgeons,” this SAM was developed by Dr. Richard Castillo, the Assistant Dean for Surgical Training/Education at the Oklahoma College of Optometry in Tahlequah, OK.  This SAM is comprised of 14 video segments and 28 multiple-choice questions that provide Diplomates with the opportunity to assess their current knowledge of anesthesia for office-based procedures.  Diplomates who are interested in expanding the scope of their practices will find this SAM to be particularly informative.



Check Board Certification Status

By going through the voluntary process of becoming board certified, our Diplomates demonstrate competence beyond entry level.
