Multidisciplinary Sessions

Excellence in modern ophthalmic care is a result of multi professional team working. To deliver this, all members of the team must have a commitment to life long learning, exemplary practical skills and an open and collaborative approach to providing care.

The multi professional sessions reflect the SOE commitment to excellence, providing delegates with an opportunity for exploring innovative approaches to care through a modern lens, with expert representation from nursing staff; orthoptists; ophthalmologists and other key ophthalmic service providers.

The sessions and courses are appropriate for all ophthalmologists and their teams, young ophthalmologists and of course the wider ophthalmic health professionals team.
