‘Super Sunday’ One Day CPD Intensive: 24 June 2012

The Optometry Association of Australia NSW/ACT will host a one day intensive of lectures for eye care professionals on Sunday 24 June. Super Sunday at Sydney’s Australian Technology Park will offer delegates two streams for most of the day with 45-minute lectures running back to back.

Just some of the lectures to be presented at Super Sunday include a presentation on ‘Managing microbial keratitis’ by the Head of School at SOVS NSW Professor Fiona Stapleton, and ‘Retinal vascular disease: separating the urgencies from the emergencies’ by ophthalmologist Simon Chen, a specialist in sutureless vitreoretinal surgery, intravitreal anti-VEGF therapy and laser cataract surgery. Medical retina and uveitis specialist, Claire Hooper will deliver a presentation on ‘Autoimmune diseases and the eyes’ and third generation optometrist Anthony Chapman-Davies will present on ‘Peripheral retina: venturing past the vortex veins’.

Andrew McKinnon, CEO of the Optometrists Association NSW/ACT, said the conference format will differ from those traditionally attended by the profession. “For a start, there are no dedicated meal breaks. There will be extended times for morning tea, afternoon tea and lunch, meaning that you choose when to take a break.

“This format will also allow you to attend the lectures that interest you the most and take time out to catch up with colleagues and visit the trade display,” he said.

Two-and-a-half CPD points can be attained with assessment at the end of each lecture via an electronic keypad

The School of Optometry and Vision Science and the Centre for Eye Health will run two practical workshops on the Saturday afternoon prior to Super Sunday at the UNSW School of Optometry. The Workshop topics are ‘Gonioscopy’ and ‘Practical applications of clinical ocular imaging’.

Two-and-a-half CPD points can be attained with assessment at the end of each lecture via an electronic keypad. Lectures without assessment carry 1.5 CPD points. With six CPD points attainable at each of the workshops, a total of 40 CPD points can be achieved across the entire weekend.

Super Sunday will be held at Australian Technology Park, 2 Locomotive St, Eveleigh (enter via Bay 4).
