Message from BIPOSA's President
BIPOSA'S virtual event will take place over two half days - paediatric ophthalmology (Wednesday afternoon) and strabismus (Friday morning). We are hoping to host the Bristol 2022 meeting as originally planned face to face and the London Meeting is postponed until October 2023.
Following the success of our recent monthly webinar programme we very much hope that the virtual meeting in autumn 2021 will be of value and interest to our members and attendees. The virtual meeting is free for BIPOSA members and there will be a charge for all non-members.
We look forward to welcoming you!
We have a fantastic programme lined up for the two sessions with engaging speakers who are experts in their field. We are delighted to welcome Dr Linda Dagi who will give our keynote lecture on Friday morning on optomizing management of vertial torsional diplopia from Thyroid Eye Diesease. Programme available to download
Meeting registration is now Closed.
Members will be able to access videos after the event.

CPD and certificates
Focus is on reflection and discussion and there should now be much less emphasis on the collection of evidence. Ophthalmologists and orthoptists are now encouraged to record their learning and development through self-certification. The overarching principle remains that one CPD point is allowed per hour of educational time, excluding breaks, for attendance at events and for teaching.
CPD is based on self-reflection and our certificates are not proof of attendance more a personal record. If you would like a certificate template please download, save to your local machine add in your name. We will not email certificates.
