Evidence based medicine influences clinical practice and policy.  Knowledge of evidence based medicine and what it means for ophthalmology will be useful for all health care professionals involved in eye care.

The Evidence Based Ophthalmology Workshop 2011 will concentrate on how to apply evidence into practice.

This year we are fortunate to have three distinguished keynote speakers.  Professor Ravi Thomas of the Queensland Eye Institute will enlighten us on what constitutes evidence.  He will discuss Baye’s theorum and its applications in clinical decision and diagnostic testing. Dr. Salmaan Qureshi, editor for Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology, will discuss critical appraisal of literature and evidence for treatment of diabetic retinopathy. Dr. Stephanie Watson, editor for the Cochrane Eyes and Vision Group, International Centre for Eye Health, will discuss evidences for treating common cornea and external diseases such as recurrent corneal erosion syndrome, blepharitis and herpetic keratitis.

The sessions are designed to be interactive as well as informative and will discuss topics in several areas of ophthalmology. Please see the program overview for further information. Program Overview (PDF 11KB)

We look forward to you joining us.
