Optometry Virtually Connected: Program Out

Optometry Australia has opened registration and released the program for its annual national education conference, Optometry Virtually Connected, from 17–18 of this month.

For the fourth consecutive year, delegates are invited to attend from across Australia and New Zealand as part of an international conference partnership with the New Zealand Association of Optometrists.

The 2023 live CPD program opens with keynote speaker Professor Andrew Turpin, who will explore artificial intelligence, machine learning, deep learning, and why the data now available in care settings is underutilised. He headlines a full program featuring up to 22 hours of quality-assured clinical content to supercharge optometrists’ continued professional development learning requirements over one weekend.

The second day will open with a plenary presentation entitled ‘Public health and Indigenous eye health: Optometry needs to do more’, presented by Professors Isabelle Jalbert, Sharon Bentley, and Fiona Stapleton.

Two concurrent streams will run on each day; on 17 June, the first stream will feature individual presentations on dry eye and myopia. On 18 June, the two streams will be contact lenses and systemic diseases.

All hours spent attending Optometry Virtually Connected sessions, plus any assessments undertaken, will be uploaded directly into delegates’ Learning Plan.

This year, the event will be hosted on the Joyn platform (ovc.joyn-us.app/agenda), which is now live.

Optometry Virtually Connected is free for Optometry Australia members. To register visit: ovc.joyn-us.app.
