Shamir Insight has launched a continuing education portal designed to help eyecare professionals better serve their patients. The portal focuses on staff education in both new technology and refresher courses. The site is now live at quantumoptical.com/ shamirCEPortal
with free access to all eyecare professionals.
The portal contains 21 self-guided Shamir developed presentations that provide the latest information on Shamir products, education certifications and industry updates, all in one centralized location.
“We could not be more excited to offer such an amazing educational tool to assist eyecare practitioners in furthering their knowledge around technology, practice management, optics and managed vision care, to name a few topics. This will be a beneficial tool for onboarding, keeping up with the latest information and as a refresher,” says Pam Benson Gibson, Shamir’s director of education.
In addition to Shamir’s education modules and in conjunction with Quantum Optical, for a small fee, the portal also offers over 90 courses for CE credits including four COPE courses.
The portal is Shamir’s latest initiative to provide ECPs with useful information and key business strategies. It follows last year’s launch of Shamir's Vitamin See
The company is also working on developing a portal for labs with the same idea in mind, which will be released soon.
