This page contains our calendars for clinical meetings and executive committee meetings. Clinical meetings are free to AONAQ members, but non-members are welcome to attend for a small fee.


Ophthalmic nursing in Australia is a diverse, ever-changing field affected by the changing nature of healthcare practices and new therapeutic developments and technological advances. Ongoing education and self-development are essential aspects of a nurse’s registration. We offer three educational seminars a year — our clinical meetings earning 3 CPD points each — and a conference, which earns 6 CPD points. Please see “Educational Events 2018” below for our events calendar. A link to a flyer with more detail for each event will be added as their date approaches.

If you are interested in presenting a paper or an educational session for a clinical meeting, please send an email to
