CPD: Test yourself

Continuing Professional Development (CPD), also known as Continuing Medical Education (CME), describes courses and activities which help professionals such as health care workers to broaden their knowledge and improve their skills.

Through this CPD test yourself section, we aim to support your continued professional development. We hope that you will use these questions to test your own knowledge and understanding, and that you will discuss them with your colleagues and other members of the eye care team.

These questions have been developed in association with the International Council of Ophthalmology and are based on the style of the ICO Advanced Examination www.icoexams.org/exams/advanced
