By now, we know well that our senses don’t operate independently. That’s certainly the case for sight and hearing – that’s why we bring together eye and hearing care professionals at the Clinical Conference 2019. Besides informative lectures and practical presentations, you will have plenty of time to share knowledge and experiences with colleagues – and you will receive ADAP, Kadiz or StAr points for your participation.
For optometrists, opticians, optical advisers, optics students and other eye care professionals this year’s theme is making better eye care accessible to everyone. An ambitious goal that we can only achieve by working together with all healthcare providers in the industry. Together we can take steps to shape the current changes in eye care and ensure that our patients and customers receive the right care in the right place.
Auditors and audiology students can participate in a separate programme focussed on the best hearing care for everyone. To be able to offer this, cooperation between hearing care professionals, hearing aid manufacturers and other healthcare providers is important. If we keep on learning, share our knowledge and improve our skills, we can respond to the needs of the customer, make the right diagnosis and ultimately find the right hearing solution.

As there will be an increased pressure on the healthcare industry, the optometrist of the future needs to work closer with both general physicians and eye doctors. That means more enhanced optical services will be available in optical stores and that the optometrist will play an even more crucial role in eye health. At Green Club, we believe that keeping your knowledge up-to-date is vital in this ever-changing industry and will become even more important in the future. Therefore, we provide you with the tools to prepare yourself for the future, keep on learning and refresh your knowledge in an easy and professional way.
