  • WHEN: Sunday 19 August 2018, 9 am – 5 pm

This will be done through topics that focus specifically on this, cases which are examples of strong robust collaboration, and presentation of shared care models from around the country. There will be a focus on identifying glaucoma cases that require prioritisation and emergency glaucoma. There will be an interactive case-based session which was very popular in the 2017 symposium. The scientific programme will be overseen by Professor Helen Danesh-Meyer. Speakers from both optometry and ophthalmology will be present.
