The Optometry Board of Australia (the Board) has today published six guidance documents to help practitioners plan for a safe return to practice.
The Board has published these materials in recognition of a need within the profession for clear guidance materials to assist practitioners who plan to take a lengthy break from practice.
If you would like to remain registered, there are actions that you will need to take to meet your ongoing obligations and to make returning to practice easier.

The Board’s return to practice guidance documents are to be read in conjunction with the Board’s Recency of practice registration standard.
