BCLA seeks clinical workshop proposals

BCLA seeks clinical workshop proposals

By Martin Burns

The British Contact Lens Association (BCLA) is seeking proposals for presentations at its 2011 Clinical Conference.

It will be hosting clinical workshops at the event, which is set to take place in Manchester between May 26th and 29th next year.

Presenters will receive a voucher which will give them £100 off the cost of their conference attendance for each 90-minute presentation, while each submission is required to state the purpose of the workshop, as well as the format, each of the course objectives and the clinical content.

BCLA president elect and conference programme committee member Dr Catharine Chisholm explained: "The new Clinical Spotlight category has been developed with contact lens and eyecare practitioners in mind. We are inviting practitioners to submit proposals on topics that are relevant to clinical practice today, providing conference delegates with valuable take-home "pearls" to apply in their day-to-day practice."

The deadline for submissions is 24 September 2010, the BCLA states.
