Eye problems present commonly in general practice and the hospital emergency department, yet undergraduate eye health training is minimal in many medical and allied health schools. Without some postgraduate ophthalmology training, General Practitioners (GPs) and Allied Health Professionals are often under equipped to handle common eye presentations including infections and inflammation, injuries and foreign bodies, and early detection of sight threatening conditions such as retinal disease and neuro-ophthalmic emergencies.
This comprehensive course has been designed by Ophthalmologists for GPs and Allied Health Professionals to help them diagnose and optimally manage common and/or sight threatening eye conditions. This course aims to cover the major Ophthalmology subjects that primary health providers find themselves confronted with on a daily basis. In this course you will learn about eye and vision assessment, modes of presentation, relevant investigations and management of all of the common and/or sight threatening eye conditions.
This course is ideal for General Practitioners, Emergency Care Doctors, Nurses, Optometrists and Eye Health Workers who wish to learn or update and apply new clinical skills and have them formally recognised and assessed towards a qualification.
