The Business of Myopia, the third course in the Brien Holden Vision Institute’s Myopia Management Program will deliver to participants the business knowledge and skills to effectively integrate myopia management into their practice. The course begins Aug. 20 and closes Sept. 10.
“The Myopia Education Program serves the profession in providing the needed knowledge to respond to the growing myopia epidemic. Often we have doctors ask us what steps to take to reverse the escalating myopia trend. We are proud to provide the training and education to drive awareness and uptake of myopia management to tackle rising myopia levels – while also ensuring business success,” said Yvette Waddell, CEO of the Brien Holden Vision Institute.
Course 3: The Business of Myopia, teaches participants how to set up their practice for myopia management – and maintain success. They will learn how to create a marketing strategy to promote and expand their practice, and receive crucial guidance in business process, patient communications and education.
The Business of Myopia joins Course 1: Managing Myopia and Course 2: Complex Cases in the widely successful suite of independent learning courses, currently unrivaled in the profession. The courses utilize interactive case studies to guide practitioners through their learning along with polls, questions and videos, and presents opportunities to engage in case-based discussions with global experts.
