Ehsan Vaghefi was recently successful in obtaining a Distinguished Visitor Award and utilised this to bring Professor Barbara Pierscionek of Kingston University, London, to the University of Auckland to present two seminars. The evening seminar was presented to members of the profession and was on the topic of An Optometrist’s Guide to Ethical Clinical Practice. Dr Nicola Anstice presented a complementary session on Cultural Competency Training within the Faculty of Medical & Health Sciences. The event qualified for CPD points. Feedback received was extremely positive; the session was well-received and considered topical and engaging by the attendees. We are planning further events to build on this later in 2017.
