Envision Conference calls for vision rehabilitation submissions for clinical, research sessions

February 20, 2013

The Envision Conference is seeking submissions for clinical education and research sessions through March 22, 2013.

The Envision Conference is a multidisciplinary meeting focusing on vision rehabilitation.

Clinical education submissions should incorporate practical information vision rehabilitation practitioners and educators need to succeed professionally and should incorporate the principles of evidence-based practice in order to close practice gaps in patient care.

Those involved in visual research may submit a research abstract for a research presentation.

The fields of professional and academic visual research, as well as applied psychology, vision therapy, occupational therapy, and practicing optometrists and ophthalmologists are all encouraged to participate.

Presenters are encouraged to submit multiple proposals across both clinical education and research.

“Providing the best service and broadest outreach possible for people who are blind or visually impaired will be my focus,” he said.
