CVE face-to-face CPD update
13 May 2020
Due to the ongoing measures to limit the spread of Covid 19 and international travel restrictions, both the Melbourne June conference “Vetective Story” and the September Noosa conference “Crook in the Guts” will be postponed until the same time next year. The staged, three step plan announced by the Australian government continues to rely upon physical distancing and maximum numbers at gatherings, which effectively means that most face-to-face events planned by the CVE for 2020 may not be held. The planned Ophthalmology: Theory and Practice seminar and workshop in early August and the Stress Free Surgery Workshop scheduled for 29 August will also be postponed. At this stage, we hope that other face-to-face events planned for later in the year will proceed as scheduled. However, we will be closely monitoring advice and government directives and acting accordingly. If further events need to be cancelled or postponed in the interests of public health, we will offer a full refund of registration fees. We recommend that if booking flights or accommodation you enquire about their refund or credit policy.
The CVE continues to offer a broad range of online education with new TimeOnline courses and webinars available to be completed in your own time from the safety of your own home. Distance Education courses are open for registration with attractive early bird discounts for CVE Members. We look forward to being able to provide our traditional range of conferences, seminars and workshops in 2021 as well as a new range of on-demand online courses. In the meantime, stay safe and healthy.
