BSAVA's Regions Now programme to continue virtually
The BSAVA has announced that its popular Regions Now programme is to continue in its virtual format.
Regions Now was introduced in September 2020 to enable the continued provision of CPD during the COVID-19 pandemic. The online sessions offer high-quality learning in 12 areas of the UK but can be accessed from any location.
Chair of Regions Now, Beckie Smith, said: “It’s obviously disappointing to be unable to go ahead with our plans to develop Regions Now from virtual to face-to-face meetings. Our virtual Regions Now programme with its ‘community format’ has been very well received so far and we plan to build on this beyond March.”
She added: “Our regional volunteers are all committed to continue to deliver relevant, engaging, educational and practical content throughout the regions, despite the ongoing constraints of the pandemic.”
Both BSAVA members and non-members can join the sessions, which begin with an hour of pre-recorded content available up to a week before the main live session.
The live events are followed by a question and answer session with the main speaker, after which participants will be able to offer their observations and share their experiences in an online discussion forum.
BSAVA members may attend the sessions free of charge while the fee for non-members is £50.00. Priority booking will be offered to the particular region hosting the event, although the events are open to members around the country. For more information and to book a place, visit bsava.com
