SOC Spring Meeting, Friday 22nd February 2019

NHS Highland arranged an impressive programme for the 2019 Spring Meeting, held at the Stirling Management Centre. Both free paper sessions were varied and educational with topics covering reviews of current practice, for example outcomes of SLT laser in Lothian and Iluvien in Grampian to studies investigating new ways of running services such as the use of Artificial Intelligence in referral triage and new ways of running AMD and diabetic maculopathy clincs. 

There were 3 Guest Speakers, who each delivered two talks. In the first, entitled 'Tomorrow's World'  the speakers outlined the expected challenges in each of their subspecialties in the years to come. The day ended with the Guest Speaker's second session: 'If I could go back in time...', during which the audience was treated to a number of challenging and memorable cases from each of the speaker's subspecialty, each of which provided interesting and valuable lessons.

The 3 Guest Speakers were:

Mr Keith Barton - Glaucoma Specialist, Moorfields Eye Hospital

Miss Laura Steeples, Uveitis Specialist, Manchester Royal Eye Hospital

Professor Heinrich Heimann, Vitreoretinal and Oncology Specialist, Royal Liverpool University Hospital

 

The SOC Paper Prize was won by:

The SOC Poster Prize was won by:
