MAYopia Day - Webinar 1 - Myopia: putting the evidence-base into practice

When:

Time:

Interactive CPD points: 1

CooperVision logoIn recent years, myopia has become an area of practice where clinicians have the opportunity to not only correct, but also influence the progression of myopia and improve clinical outcomes for their patients. With a rapidly changing evidence base and an ever-growing portfolio of clinical solutions available, it is important that practitioners are updated on the latest developments in the field and incorporate myopia management tools within their skillset.

This event offers a full day of education on the theme myopia management designed to bring the profession together to hear from experts and share learnings in this key clinical area. The programme will deliver five live webinars, each offering one interactive CPD point. Delegates are invited to attend the full programme or choose individual sessions based upon their clinical interests.

Session one: Myopia: putting the evidence-base into practice

Myopia and myopia management is one of the most searched for topics in optometry and is also one of the fastest evolving areas when it comes to available ways of intervening with new products becoming licensed to help slow the progression of myopia. So, how do we as eye care professionals (ECPs) in practice wade through all of the information available to adapt to this ever-changing area of patient care? Evidence-based practice is defined as the ‘conscientious, explicit and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients.’ It integrates best available and clinically relevant scientific research evidence with a clinician’s expertise and an individual patient’s values and environment.

This session will look at recent and more longstanding evidence-based research and statements which are making management of myopia a standard of care for ECPs and how that evidence base demonstrates why myopia management is so important as well and how it can be used to help achieve the best outcome for patients.
