Case Study
The Challenge
Increase US and international glaucoma specialists' knowledge and awareness of the current and potential treatment regimens for glaucoma.

The LCMEI Solution
Assemble the top 14 glaucoma experts from around the globe to discuss the recent advances in glaucoma treatments at a CME-accredited symposium before the World Glaucoma Congress in Singapore.

Secure outstanding program faculty, develop program curricula and educational materials, handle all faculty and staff travel arrangements, oversee on-site symposium logistics and meal functions, and provide full pre-and post-symposium CME services—on time and under budget!

Develop and submit a supplement based on the symposium's content to publish in the International Glaucoma Review journal for its US and international subscribers.

Distribute additional copies of the supplement monograph to US ophthalmologists (including subscribers to the Lippincott Williams & Wilkins publication, Journal of Glaucoma).

The Outcomes
Program participants overwhelmingly stated that LCMEI's CME program met its objectives by increasing their clinical knowledge, which in turn led to improved competence and patient care.
