AONA Conference 2023

A resounding success

The first conference in Melbourne since 2019 was deemed a huge success with international, interstate and local speakers, Ophthalmic Nurse representatives from all Australian states and over 80 local and interstate delegates. Presentations ranged from advancing ophthalmic nursing scope of practice and developments in medical and nursing practices to use of digital technologies and the move to sustainable health care processes. An auspicious restart for Victoria and a memorable event for AONA.
