About Webinars

A presenter will discuss the topic, using a powerpoint presentation and a webcam. Participants will be able to access the presentation through the internet, and either have audio through their computer or telephone (free call).  A key feature of the Webinar is its interactive elements, where participants can type in questions to the presenter for consideration at the end of the seminar. Webinars are offered to optometrists to provide CPD that will assist with identifying clinical problems in their practice settings, provide information to help solve those problems and increase their application of knowledge to practice. This service is a convenient method of obtaining continuing professional development anywhere in the world.
