First phase of CPD education at 100% Optical 2024 unveiled
Insight into the CPD sessions, curated and delivered by the AOP, that will run during 100% Optical 2024
26 October 2023
Organisers of 100% Optical have shared insight into the AOP-curated CPD programme that will be delivered at the show next year.
Practitioners are now able to read about more than 50 CPD-accredited sessions that will run during the three-day trade show, which will be held at ExCeL on 25–27 February 2024. Further insight into the education programme will be released in second and third phases over the next few weeks.
While practitioners are able to view the CPD programme, they will be unable to book onto any of the sessions until the New Year and are therefore encouraged to register for the show in order to receive information on when the programme booking goes live.
Head of education at the AOP and OT clinical editor, Dr Ian Beasley, said: “As the official UK partner since the event’s inception, the AOP has curated a programme that supports practitioners in achieving their CPD requirements as we enter the final year of the cycle. The variety of content across all three days provides a platform for attendees to consolidate and broaden their knowledge across key clinical themes of relevance to contemporary practice.”
As the official partner of the show, AOP members will benefit from exclusive access to education booking from 3 January. Booking will then open to ABDO members on 11 January, before becoming available to all other visitors from 13 January onwards.
