Neuro ophthalmology the unmissable

Feb 07
2020

Venue: The Royal College of Ophthalmologists

Description: Unmissable’ adjective 1. so good that it should not be missed (Collins English Dictionary) 2. disorders, that by their threat to life or sight, that should not be missed (British Neuro-Ophthalmologists) This RCOphth seminar presents an interactive case-based symposium that will discuss 10 neuro-ophthalmology disorders that must be diagnosed quickly and managed appropriately in order to prevent loss of life or sight. The speakers will deliver a typical case and underline the key points of their case. There will be a brief panel discussion of red flag signs and symptoms, and the current management of the disorder will be highlighted. Cases will include: finding that intracranial tumour in your busy ophthalmology clinic; identifying potentially deadly causes of papilloedema such as cerebral venous sinus thrombosis; knowing when to refer for urgent surgery to protect the vision; understanding when to be worried about double vision and how to catch its fellow travellers that point to more ominous systemic causes of symptoms; when to refer to the stroke pathway and finally uncovering novel and possibly treatable causes of optic neuritis distinct from demyelination that could change your patient’s outcome and long-term visual and neurological status. Your faculty for the day will be James Benzimra, a consultant paediatric and neuro-ophthalmologist at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital in Devon; Richard Blanch, Mike Burdon, and Susan Mollan who are consultant neuro-ophthalmologists at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, University Hospitals Birmingham; Dr Arani Nitkunan, a consultant neurologist at Croydon University Hospital and St George's University Hospital and Dr Sui Wong, consultant neuro-ophthalmologist at Moorfields Eye Hospital and St Thomas’s London. Delegates will be encouraged to participate in each case presentation and, for this reason, the programme doesn’t list the diagnoses. Handouts, summarising the key features of each disorder will be available at the end

Management of the Macula in Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachment

Mar 13
2020

Venue: The Royal College of Ophthalmologists

Description: New surgical methods and recent publications have changed the approach to rhegmatogenous retinal detachment and the macula. The role of macular detachment in visual recovery has been re-assessed. Recent macula off RRD perhaps require prompt surgery for best results. The use of vitrectomy and gas has led to the development of newly recognised problems such as macular shift and distorted vision. Postoperative posturing regimes are variable and uncertain. This seminar has been designed to explore these areas of controversy with experts from the UK providing their different opinions on solutions.

Management and leadership in ophthalmology

Jun 03
2020

Venue: The Royal College of Ophthalmologists

Description: Ophthalmology services are under increasing pressure and it is more important than ever for all ophthalmologists, clinical and non-clinical managers leading, or involved in developing and delivering, services to strengthen their non clinical leadership and management skills. This is the second College Management and Leadership Seminar, suitable for a wide range of clinical and non clinical staff involved in or overseeing ophthalmology services, and also of interest to commissioners and service improvement staff. The topics are wide ranging and will be set in the context of current national developments and demands in ophthalmology provision. Some of the most important day to day areas, such as job planning, dealing with failing colleagues, basics of budgets and business cases, HR issues, all set within the framework of ophthalmology, will be covered. We will also look at regional and community pathways and how this fits with changes in the commissioning landscape. In addition we look at some fascinating higher level areas, including regulation, culture change and the future of national plans for the healthcare workforce. It should prove to be a valuable, practical and stimulating day and a chance to network with key multidisciplinary colleagues and leaders throughout the UK.
