The Canadian Society of Ophthalmic Medical Personnel (CSOMP) held its annual continuing education program on Friday, June 6, at the World Trade & Convention Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia. This program is held in conjunction with the Canadian Ophthalmological Society's annual meeting and offered the ability to earn up to 6.5 JCAHPO "A" credits.

Approximately 60 attendees were treated to a variety of lectures in various content categories which were presented by several volunteer faculty. They also had the option to peruse the exhibit hall and attend lectures offered in the COS general meeting.

JCAHPO was an exhibitor at the COS meeting and also conducted nine COMT Performance Exams. We are happy to report that all nine candidates passed!
