FREE CPD webinars with the Nystagmus Network for Optometrists and Dispensing Opticians
A brand new series of three Nystagmus Network webinars are now available online on demand for high street optical staff. Attendance at each webinar delivers 1 CPD (Continued Professional Development) point, allowing practitioners to maintain their professional standards.
Investigating and managing nystagmus in the orthoptic clinic is by Gemma Arblaster, Orthoptist at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Lecturer in Orthoptics at the University of Sheffield. Gemma also serves as a research adviser to the Nystagmus Network.
Jayshree Vasani, Dispensing and Contact Lens Optician, ABDO practical examiner and CET Facilitator, presents Solutions for patients with nystagmus, exploring dispensing spectacles and contact lenses for patients with infantile and acquired nystagmus.
Looking at nystagmus from the patient perspective, the charity’s Information and Development Manager, Sue Ricketts, entitled her webinar 1 in 1,000 things you never knew about nystagmus, bringing the patient voice to the fore.
The webinars will remain available to eye care practitioners FREE OF CHARGE until 12 May 2022.
Sue Ricketts said: “It is the Nystagmus Network’s ambition to bring eye care practitioners and their practices and the nystagmus community closer together, to build stronger relationships, based on knowledge, experience and trust. We are delighted to have the opportunity to provide professional training to help us work towards this goal, thanks to the support the charity enjoys from clinicians and researchers.”
