To repeat or not repeat? Confident decision making with visual fields

This is an interactive discussion workshop using real patient cases where visual field interpretation has been needed to make sound clinical decisions. The cases are typical of patients encountered in primary care optometric practice and include conditions affecting different parts of the visual pathway from cornea to cortex.
Common dilemmas will be discussed including deciding on when to repeat, refer or monitor and when to suspect neurological or other pathology.

At our online session you will join a large group for an introduction and then participate in a small, virtual group to review cases. The introduction session will be conducted by Angela and each small group will be facilitated by an experienced facilitator.

Please note this event has a limited capacity and is only available to qualified members. This session is repeated on Wednesday 24 March. Members do not need to attend both sessions. The workshop has a fee of £20.00.
