Bursaries are being offered to ophthalmic nurses for a seminar exploring the most common cause of sight loss in the UK.
The Macular Disease Society has made the 35 bursaries available for the Elizabeth Thomas seminar, named after the charity’s founder.
The bursaries will reimburse the cost of registration and are offered on a first come first serve basis.
The seminar, which is organised by the Royal College of Ophthalmologists, features expert speakers covering the latest research and treatments concerning macular disease.
The event will take place on the 2 November at the East Midlands Conference Centre in Nottingham.
Helen Jackman, chief executive of the Macular Disease Society, said: “Ophthalmic nurses play a vital role in the care of people with macular disease, so we are delighted to be able to offer these bursaries.
“The Elizabeth Thomas seminar is a fantastic opportunity for clinical staff working with macular patients to hear the latest news from experts in the field.”
Nurses interested in claiming a bursary should register for a place through the Royal College of Ophthalmologists and then email firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm attendance.
