About

The Bayer Ophthalmology Masterclass Programme, Nurse and AHP Education supports the delivery of high-quality medical retina patient care by enhancing participants’ skills and knowledge of the diagnosis and management of medical retina conditions as well as providing an opportunity to learn about and share best practice.

These webinars provide an opportunity to explore how the pandemic has fostered new ways of working across the service to optimise the delivery of patient care in these challenging times. Speakers in the field of medical retina will share their experiences and learnings during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Who are the webinars suitable for?

The webinars are aimed at nurses who have worked for a minimum of 1 year in the field of medical retina. It would also benefit allied health professionals and optometrists who have a special interest in medical retina and have recently moved into the field.
