RANZCO’s 52nd  Virtual Annual Congress  Saturday 26 February -Tuesday 1 March 2022

The RANZCO Board and staff from RANZCO and Think Business Events agreed to run the 52nd RANZCO Annual Scientific Congress, taking place this February, as a virtual event. There has been an overwhelming desire to run the Congress as a hybrid event and we are aware that everyone is looking forward to meeting in person. The RANZCO Board have waited until the 11th hour to make this decision to afford all possible chances of a face-to-face meeting. However, the risks are simply too high.

The Congress will run Saturday 26 February through to midday on Tuesday 1 March.  Information and bookings at /

RANZCO Branch/Pathology Imaging Meeting  for 2022 TBC

EyeTeleC has been organised by the NSW AONA committee. Nationally AONA members can phone in and be part of a telephone conference.

These conferences last for approximately one hour. When you register you will be given a conference phone number to call in and join other ophthalmic nurses. The line is initially open where you can hear all participants. The line is then muted and the speaker will present the topic. The line will then be open for all to participate in question time. PowerPoint presentations will be email to you prior to the event.

The best thing about this is that you can participate from the comfort or your own home or get a group together in one place around one phone.
