Retinoblastoma Awareness and Education Campaign- Paediatric Eye Diseases and Retinoblastoma Symposium

Retinoblastoma Awareness and Education Campaign-
Paediatric Eye Diseases and Retinoblastoma Symposium on 23 September 2017

In partnership with Children Cancer Foundation, we have launched our city-wide Hong Kong Retinoblastoma Awareness and Education Campaign to increase the public awareness and promote early detection of the disease since April 2017.

On 23 September 2017, we have conducted the Paediatric Eye Diseases and RB Symposium to about 300 medical personnels from Maternal Health Care Centres. Educational materials including video, poster and pamphlets will soon be distributed to all MCHCs, and paediatric clinics in Hong Kong to outreach to the young parents who bring their kids for routine vaccination.

Five topics were introduced and discussed at the symposium. They were namely Childhood Refractive Errors and Myopia, Amblyopia and Strabismus, Paediatric Eye Services in Hong Kong, Leukocoria & Retinoblastoma, and Introduction of Retinoblastoma Awareness and Education Campaign.
