Primary Care Ophthalmology

Primary Care Ophthalmology
This session chaired by Miss Stella Hornby & Miss Rajni Jain will cover topics relevant for continuing professional development for general ophthalmologists, GPs with a special interest in ophthalmology and Optometrists with an extended role. There will be a mixture of relevant CPD on clinical practical ophthalmology as well as on elective transformation of patient pathways. The new National Clinical Director for Eye Care will give us an overview. Clinical topics this year will include updates on optic disc swelling, new treatments for age-related macular degeneration, thyroid eye disease, & the burden of glaucoma - Big data and Armchairs & acanthamoeba keratitis. We will round the morning & afternoon sessions off with a series of interesting cases - the ever popular ‘Hornby’s Odd Ball Eye Cases’. The style will be friendly and interactive and would be relevant to any doctor (trainee or not) and/ or optometrist who sees general ophthalmology patients in a community or hospital setting and delegates will be encouraged to join in the discussion with questions or comments from their own experience. There is good opportunity for networking in the coffee and lunch breaks. We hope we will be able to hold this event face to face but it will be converted to an online seminar on the same day if we are not permitted. To view the programme please click Book now. The seminar is sponsored by Scope.
