Thursday, October 24 from 9:00 to 11:00 AM
This symposium seeks to highlight complex case studies presenting to the comprehensive eye care practitioner. Topics will be pertinent to all eye care providers with attention to anterior segment, posterior segment, and neuro-ophthalmic disease. The symposium aims to address how the comprehensive eye care provider can improve patient care to prevent vision loss and blindness. Fellows interested in becoming a Comprehensive Eye Care Diplomate are strongly encouraged to attend. The moderator is Hal Bohlman, OD, FAAO, and the speakers include Stephanie Klemencic, OD, MS, FAAO, Danielle Weiler, OD, FAAO, Bisant Labib, OD, FAAO, Tina Porzukowiak, OD, FAAO.

SS-05: AMCO SIG Symposium: Whoops! An Evaluation of Cases That Might Not Have Gone the Way You Wanted
Thursday, October 24 from 1:30 to 3:30 PM
The objectives of this symposium are to identify adverse outcomes associated with medical error, to modify behavior and judgment based on previous experiences, and to prevent repetition of errors leading to complications. Conferences are non-punitive and focus on the goal of patient care. They are particularly important for identifying system issues (e.g., outdated policies, changes in patient identification procedures, arithmetic errors, etc.) that affect patient care. Speakers include Christine Sindt, OD, FAAO, Dennis Siemsen, OD, FAAO, and James Hoekel, OD, FAAO.

SS-02 Optometric Education Section Symposium: Engaging Students in Learning Through Cognition, Self-Regulation, and Deliberate Practice
Thursday, October 24 from 10:00 AM to Noon
The ability to participate actively in life-long learning is an essential competency required of all future health care providers. It is necessary for students to have a clear understanding of how they can self-regulate their own learning and to critically analyze their performance. Educators are called to outline these integral skills for student success, as well as incorporate active and engaging aspects of these competencies into the classroom whether didactic, clinical or in the simulation setting. Integration and self-regulated learning techniques such as deliberate practice and metacognitive strategies are a crucial and ongoing issue for schools and colleges of optometry. Speakers include Jayne Josephsen, EdD, RN, CCCTM, and Ann Butt, EdD, RN, CNE.

SS-07: Optometric Education Section Workshop: Instructional Tools for Cognition and Self-Regulated Learning
Thursday, October 24 from 1:00 to 3:00 PM
Participants of the paired workshop will leave with an outline of specific tools that can be used in a variety of educational settings to enhance self-regulated learning. Implementation of deliberate practice interventions and a framework for student support will be reviewed. Additionally, an opportunity to participate in hands-on application of the tools will be provided. Speakers include Jayne Josephsen, EdD, RN, CCCTM, and Ann Butt, EdD, RN, CNE.
