College and Ulster launch research programme

Mike Bowen, College of Optometrists

A series of learning modules for optometrists who want to undertake research have been developed by the College of Optometrists in partnership with Ulster University.

The nine modules were produced as part of a National Institute for Health and Social Care Research (NIHR) funded project and included an introduction to research and getting involved in research.

Mike Bowen, director of research and knowledge at the College of Optometrists, said: ‘These modules represent an opportunity for individual optometrists to extend their skills in this area.

'By bringing additional resource and unique skills to UK research and development, UK optometrists will bring great benefits to patients across the four nations and worldwide.’
