FV-Children and Their Devices
This course will address all issues of device use and present guidelines for helping parents manage children’s device use. Digital device use is exploding through the world. This generation that has grown up using devices is very new to our society. As adults, we use our phone and the internet for many everyday activities that most recently required a phone call and physically talking with a person. We view podcasts as preparation for or participation in a “meeting.” Information is available immediately available through search engines. Products and services, including food can be ordered and delivered in record speed through a phone app. The issues are starting young and prolonged use of such devices for gaming and social media. Guidelines for managing a young population who use devices for long periods at a time.

AOA Expiration Date:
A successful practice takes a village—doctors of optometry and paraoptometric staff—to make it work and even prosper. Toward that end, the AOA has created a trove of practice management tools and services that can power practices forward in a profession and health care landscape that increasingly demands doctors practice at their highest levels and creates greater opportunities to develop and empower paraoptometric staff. These days, change is out of necessity.
A recent #AskAOA webinar, hosted by the AOA Third Party Center, offered helpful advice for how doctors can address and respond to clawbacks.
Most states require health care providers, including doctors of optometry, to report cases of abuse of children and elderly adults. AOA members are invited to attend an important webinar on the serious subject of human trafficking.
