Event description

Description

Priority registration is now open for a special event in the 2018 Queen Square GP Seminar programme, joint hosted by Queen Square Private Healthcare and Moorfields Private Eye Hospital.

For this special event, Dr Gordon Plant (Consultant Neurologist at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square) and Mr Sajjad Ahmad (Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon at Moorfields Eye Hospital, London) will co-present to explore the natural synergy between neurology and ophathalmology.

This interactive event will focus on providing useful guidance for those working in primary care and will cover the following key topics:

The 'Red Eye' - Mr Sajjad Ahmad will describe a systematic approach to managing the patient with a 'red eye', an extremely common eye presentation in primary care. The talk will cover the causes of red eye, including infection, inflammation and injury, discuss diagnosis and patient management. Mr Sajjad will highlight common causes, but also discuss those rarer causes which should be referred and/or managed more urgently.

Acute Visual Loss - Dr Gordon Plant will present on acute visual loss, addressing elements of the history and examination that are useful in evaluating a patient with visual loss and identifying whether the loss is due to an optic neuropathy or ocular disorder.



Registration for this event is free of charge, and certificates will be provided to all in attendance for CPD purposes. All delegates are also invited to attend a drinks and networking reception immediatley after the seminar, where delegates can meet the presenters and staff from both Queen Square and Moorfields Eye Hospital.

Please note that these seminars are designed for medical professionals, and are not appropriate for patients or members of the general public. The organisers reserve the right to cancel registration.
