Specsavers Clinical Conference Underway

The 2021 edition of the Specsavers Clinical Conference (SCC) is underway as a hybrid experience with in-person events, held across major cities in Australia and New Zealand, combined with a virtual series of topical, educational and interactive CPD-accredited seminars and presentations.

As in the past, SCC is providing optometrists with an opportunity to reconnect and network with colleagues and industry professionals all while benefiting from a line-up of speakers who offer their insights and knowledge to the professional community.

The series, which kicked off on 18 May with a presentation by A/Prof Elaine Chong on managing patients with corneal dystrophies, includes a range of clinical and professional development activities. The next event, on 8 June from 7pm-9pm AEST, is a virtual lecture on diabetic retinopathy (DR) – the role of technology in managing DR and remote DR care, by Dr Ben Whitlam (Fred Hollows Foundation) and Dr Angus Turner (Lions Eyes for Sight). On Wednesday 14 July, the conference program will move to New Zealand with an in-person event on providing culturally appropriate eye care.

Running until October, other topics to be covered range from glaucoma diagnosis and co-management, to paediatric eyecare, macular degeneration, cataracts, improving patient care and working collaboratively with tertiary eye care providers.

This series is designed to help all optometrists build their own personalised plan of CPD activity, based on experience and individual interests, and presents educational content tailored for clinical optometry practice. All events are free.
