AONA NSW 38th Annual Conference
 On June 26, 2021
The theme of our annual conference this year is “Eye Contact: Communicating across the Borders”

Registration is from 7:30am.  8:30am to 16:30

Networking until 17:30 – please let us know if you are attending the networking session after the conference (via contact us) as this is a catered event.



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.
