Therapeutics course

The optometry education team will be hosting a series of lecture webinars for hospital and community based optometrists who are interested in the therapeutic management of ocular conditions. This will be of particular interest to Independent Prescriber optometrists and those working towards the Independent Prescriber qualification. You can choose to attend either one day or both days.

Course structure

A two day course composed of a series of lecture webinars on the topic therapeutics and delivered by senior optometrist and consultant ophthalmologists. Each lecture awards CPD points to attendees, including optometrist and independent prescriber points. At the end of each lecture there will be a minimum 15 minutes interactive Q & A session with the leading speaker, where delegates have the opportunity to ask questions to check understanding and reflect on learning. There will also be a peer review session where delegates discuss cases.
