The practice of pediatric ophthalmology is constantly changing. Clinicians are faced with the challenge of keeping up-to-date with new information and strategically incorporating those advances into their daily practice. “What’s New in Children’s Eye Health: Strabismus” is designed to address gaps in knowledge and competence regarding the impact of strabismus on visual function in children. In an innovative teaching format, members from the department of Ophthalmology at Boston Children’s Hospital present the information using a TED talk-style lecture format to promote a novel and engaging approach to transfer of medical knowledge.

Learning Objectives: 

At the conclusion of this educational program, learners will be able to:

  1. Understand the impact eye misalignment or strabismus on visual function
  2. Develop tools towards identification and characterization of types of eye misalignment
  3. Discover advances in treatment of eye misalignment in children

In support of improving patient care, Boston Children’s Hospital is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.
