Successful Optometrist Conference on Central Coast 2014
March 30, 2014
Central Coast Optometrist Conference was held on 02 March 2014 at Crowne Plaza Hotel in Terrigal. Thirty-five Optometrists attended and heard from eleven industry-leading Ophthalmologists on their very latest ophthalmic knowledge and surgery techniques conducted at Central Coast Day Hospital. Conference delegates used this opportunity to strengthen referral relationships and meet their colleagues and suppliers, while earning 12T OAA CPD points.
The Conference feedback has been excellent confirming the value Optometrists place in attending:
- 100% of attendees felt that they learnt something from the presentations.
- The length of time of presentations (100%) and venue (100%) were both positive.
- 100% of attendees said that they would attend next year’s Conference.
- Optometrists requested more presentations on corneal conditions, OCT, nutrition and red eye for future Conferences.
If you attended this year’s Conference but haven’t yet completed our evaluation, we’d highly appreciate you taking a few moments to complete our evaluation so we may continue to improve.
