In the past decade, optical coherence tomography has become more valuable in patient care and is being used in increasing numbers by optometrists.
Responding to this increase in use, over the 8-9 April the Australian College of Australia (ACO) will host practical workshops providing access to OCT instruments, techniques and interpretation of data. The true value of OCTs is maximised through learning and experience and an understanding of the strengths and weaknesses the equipment’s and techniques. These workshops will provide excellent opportunities for optometrists in Australia to gain practical experience with a wide range of machines combined with relevant theory and experts leading small group discussions.
Content on Friday 8 April (14 CPD Points) will cover theory and the ways to efficiently carry out scans and to gain maximum information from the procedures. Saturday’s workshop (8 CPD Points) will appeal to clinicians who regularly perform OCT scans and would like to improve their analyses of the data to assist them in the management of their patients.
“The best feature of the OCT workshop is the opportunity to have hands-on experience with all the latest instruments. It suits optometrists who are either getting started as well those who want to get more out of their own equipment. We have great support from the companies.” Dr Adrian Bruce, ACO lead optometrist and workshop presenter.
24 CPD Points over two days
