Specsavers Clinical Conference (SCC) returns in 2021, featuring a series of in-person and virtual sessions, commencing 18 May. The educational, ophthalmology-led events will showcase best-practice resources and professional development to the broader industry.
The first event, to be held live at the Langham Hotel in Melbourne in combination with a livestreamed webinar, will feature presentations by Dr Ben Ashby, Specsavers Director of Optometry; Dr Elaine Chong, Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital and Royal Melbourne Hospital; and Dr Colin Chan, Vision Eye Institute.
We are committed to delivering professional development opportunities to all optometrists, whether that’s live or in-person
Other speakers to present over the course of the conference include Dr Angus Turner, Lions Eye Institute; Dr Ben Whithlam, Fred Hollows Foundation; and Dr Sean Cheng, Queensland Retina Specialists.
“Last years’ online event series was a great success; however, we are excited to be able to get back to delivering some in-person events this year,” said Dr Ashby.
“Participants who can’t attend a live event still have the option to get online and experience the same engaging presentations and discussions from the best minds in the industry. We are committed to delivering professional development opportunities to all optometrists, whether that’s live or in-person.”
Also included in the SCC program is the presentation of the Doug Perkins Medal, which recognises clinical excellence. This annual award will be presented alongside the newly introduced Dame Mary Perkins Award for Outstanding Patient Care to acknowledge those who have positively impacted patients or customers.
SCC is a free conference open to all optometrists, students and industry professionals across Australia and New Zealand. All events will be eligible for both Australian CPD hours and New Zealand CD and General Points.
