  • In this lecture Dr Peter Hampson explains how to protect staff and patients in optometric practice during the coronavirus pandemic. We look at how the virus is spread and how to control this, e.g. through screening patients for symptoms, hand washing, social distancing, the correct use of PPE, methods of cleaning, disinfection and sterilisation, and arranging the practice environment. On successful completion of the MCQs, you will be able to download a personalised paper certificate from MyAOP/CET to display on your practice wall or show an employer.
