What Scares You, Scares Me Too

Presented by Lesya Shuba, MD, PhD, FRCSC

This module will consist of interactive discussion of clinical cases, allowing participants to discuss some challenging clinical scenarios in glaucoma. Participants will have a chance to review common features of glaucoma as opposed to other optic neuropathies, discuss unusual cases of inflammatory glaucoma, the diagnostic and therapeutic dilemmas of glaucoma in high myopic individuals, and the challenges of dealing with pseudo-exfoliative glaucoma, among others. The clinical cases presented in this module were selected to generate discussion, with several particularities of the cases highlighting the “beyond the evidence” general theme for this program, where no clear right or wrong answer exists.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

Presented by Hady Saheb, MD, MPH, FRCSC

This module will consist of a practical and interactive session reviewing the basic and more advanced aspects of ocular coherence tomography (OCT) of the optic nerve. We will review a standardized approach to the optic nerve imaging printout and discuss straightforward cases of glaucoma diagnosis, common false positives and artifacts, as well as non-glaucomatous causes of abnormal optic nerve imaging. The same will be done for progression analyses.

2019 Call For Abstracts

The COS is accepting abstracts for the following subspecialty sessions at the 2019 COS Annual Meeting in Québec, Quebec:

Prior to submitting your abstract, please review the abstract guidelines: 2019 ABSTRACT SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Canadian Retina Society Snapshot of the Month (SOTM) Submission

Resources that physicians use to enhance their awareness of new evidence, perspectives or findings that may be potentially relevant to their professional practice can be recorded under Section 2: Self-Learning – Scanning. Royal College Fellows may choose to pursue a Personal Learning Project (PLP) to develop an answer to a question, issue or problem identified in their professional practice that arose through viewing the SOTM.

AAO Meetings on Demand

Section 2: Self-Learning (0.5 credits per activity)
Scanning: After viewing this Online Presentation, ophthalmologists may claim 0.5 credits as a scanning activity under Section 2 Self-learning in the Maintenance of Certification program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC).

–Or–

Section 2: Planned Learning (2 credits per hour)
Personal Learning Plan: A Personal Learning Plan (PLP) is a self-initiated learning activity that is stimulated by a question, issue or dilemma in your professional practice. Watching these presentations may have stimulated a question for you about your practice. To complete a PLP, you will need to name the issue, dilemma or question within your practice scenario and identify opportunities to explore this further and reflect, whether through an activity, a conference or workshop, further reading, videos, etc. When complete you may establish what you have learned and/or the changes you anticipate implementing from this learning.

You can claim Section 2 Credits within the MOC Program for time spent developing your learning plan (2 credits per hour spent). You can also claim the time spent executing the research of that question or issue (participating in a conference, webinar or reading), as well as the time you spend reflecting.

The INSIGHT Glaucoma Program: Beyond the Evidence

The INSIGHT Glaucoma Program, Beyond the Evidence, is co-chaired by Dr. Andrew Crichton and Dr. Devesh Varma. It consists of four modules developed by respected Canadian glaucoma specialists, in partnership with the Canadian Ophthalmological Society and with an unrestricted grant from Allergan. INSIGHT Glaucoma – Beyond the Evidence is a Royal College accredited program, created after extensive consultations and a needs-assessment sent to ophthalmologists across Canada asking for topics they would like discussed in glaucoma.

Four topics were identified for development:

Although evidence-based medicine is clearly the gold standard in how glaucoma patients are managed, there are certain clinical situations for which there is either no or limited evidence available. The overall objective of the program was to reinforce what evidence is available and to offer guidance through interactive discussion in some of the challenging areas where evidence is lacking.

Each module will last 90 minutes and will be centred around interactive case presentations rather than didactic lecture. At the end of the sessions, participating ophthalmologists will feel more confident in managing the areas of glaucoma discussed.

The INSIGHT Cornea Program

The INSIGHT Cornea Program, chaired by Dr. Bruce Jackson, consists of five modules developed by respected Canadian corneal specialists, Drs. K. Baig, C. Chan, J. Choremis, R. Ritenour, and G. Rocha, in partnership with the Canadian Ophthalmological Society and with an unrestricted grant from Allergan. INSIGHT is an accredited program developed after extensive consultations and a needs-assessment sent to ophthalmologists across Canada asking for topics they would like discussed in cornea and external disease.

Three topics were identified for development: Ocular Surface Disease, Corneal Ulcers, and Anterior Segment Lumps and Bumps. Because of the frequency and scope of corneal ulcers, three separate modules were developed around this topic– Bacterial, Viral (including Herpes and Adenovirus), and Immunologic – with and without systemic disease.
