Equipment company Haag-Streit UK has announced a series of continued professional development (CPD) courses to help educate and inform practitioners about optical coherence tomography (OCT) and biometry.
The first course, scheduled to take place in Crewe on 28 June, is entitled Ultrasound and OCT-A and aims to provide delegates with an overview of ophthalmic ultrasound techniques, as well as introduce them to OCT angiography (OCT-A).
The one-day event comprises a series of hands-on workshops to ensure practitioners have the opportunity to examine real patients and learn while using the technology.
The course will be run by Tarek El-Khashab of the Mid-Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
Speaking about the event, HS-UK clinical training manager, Grant Duncan, highlighted that it is a course that has proven to be popular in the past and offers attendees the opportunity to learn about ophthalmic ultrasound and the latest developments in OCT-A.
A further CPD course will be held in Leeds in October that focuses on Improving outcomes: Biometry.
Running both a general and advanced version of the course, which is aimed at both eye care practitioners and cataract and refractive nurses, speakers include consultant optometrist at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, David Sculfor, and consultant ophthalmologist at NHS Fife & Forth Valley, Peter Wilson.
Both days will feature a range of hands-on workshops that cover a range of subjects such as IOL power calculation, editing IOL data, immersion ultrasound and toric IOL planning.
