April 11, 2014 Meeting Conference
Professional Practice Gaps:
Using feedback from NEOS members and discussion by the Program Committee, retinal pharmacology was identified as a significant professional practice gap in our membership.
The content and format of this educational activity has been specifically designed to fill the identified practice gaps in our membership's current and potential scope of professional activities in a way that focuses on education, while managing commercial support and maintaining independence from promotional activities and commercial proprietary interests. This program seeks to:
1) Increase the competence of the audience in the areas of pharmacological management of retinal vascular disorders,including age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and retinal vein occlusion.
2) Improve the performance of the audience in the management of both nonexudative and exudative age-related macular degeneration.
3) Improve outcomes in the area of patient care of common retinal disorders.
