Recent Workshops – At Royal North Shore Hospital A Success!

Trainee and supervisor

Recent Trainee and Supervisor Workshops held at the Royal North Shore Hospital Sydney were deemed a success.


A very successful Ophthalmic Simulation Communications and Clinical Scenario Workshop was held on Saturday 20 June 2015 at Royal North Shore Hospital. The Workshop targeted trainees and provided them with an opportunity to deal with challenging scenarios in which professional actors took the part of patients. A professional facilitator was present at each scenario together with an ophthalmology consultant to provide clinical and professional advice. Feedback from all participating trainees, consultants and facilitators was overwhelmingly positive.

Many thanks to the five consultants who so freely gave of their time and expertise on the day. While being the last in a series of Workshops funded by the Commonwealth Government through the Specialist Training Program (STP), RANZCO is hopeful of being able to offer this highly valuable training experience in the future.


The last in the series of Ophthalmic Supervisor Training Workshops was held at Royal North Shore Hospital on 9 May 2015. Scenario based, professional actors took the part of trainees and supervisors were able to explore techniques for handling difficult communication issues.

Professional facilitators were also present at each scenario to assist the process. Feedback from this and previous workshops has been extremely positive and while the Workshops were funded by the Commonwealth Government through the Specialist Training Program (STP), RANZCO intends to use knowledge gained to develop further training resources and activities for Supervisors.
