TD-Optometry & Genetics: The Future of Precision Medicine
The 2015 launch of the Precision Medicine Initiative brought into national focus the importance of integrating patient genomic information into medical practice to optimize individual patient outcomes. This course will define precision medicine and consider the anticipated changes in medical and optometric practice. In particular, we will look at the present integration of genetics and genomics into eye care, including current challenges and gaps in our understanding of the genetic basis of ocular conditions. We will cover the benefits and limitations of current genetic test panels for ocular conditions. We will address the current clinical guidelines for genetic testing and the incorporation of genetic testing into clinical practice. Additionally, we will cover the current state of ocular gene therapy and related research.

AOA Expiration Date:
Constant presence: Alliance builds reputation for patient safety advocacy
Founded five years ago, the Health Care Alliance for Patient Safety (HCAPS) is making good on its mission to advocate for patient safety and protect the fundamental doctor-patient relationship. The alliance’s advocacy will be recognized with the AOA’s Apollo Award during a ceremony at the 2023 Optometry’s Meeting® June 21-24.
What defines the value of care we provide?
Health and vision plans have not adapted and grown with the care we deliver but hold back optometry’s momentum.
How to speak the universal language of care
How to create a bilingual and culturally sensitive practice, why it matters to patients and how it can set you apart from the competition.
