Abstract

To practise in the UK, optometrists and dispensing opticians
must be registered with the General Optical Council (GOC)
and a mandatory quantity of continuing education and
training (CET) must be undertaken (GOC 2016). For the
purposes of this paper, the term ‘continuing education and
training’ is considered interchangeable with ‘continuing
professional development’, ‘continuing education’ and
‘continuing professional education’.
