CFEH Webinar 2, 2024: Professional collaboration – benefiting you, your patients and your practice

Date: 14/05/2024 (AEST)


Provider: Centre For Eye Health


Activity Outline

With the advent of new technologies, the ways in which we as Optometrists can manage patients with suspected or diagnosed disease has evolved. Virtual Ophthalmology consults, co-management of suitable patients and linking in with other health specialists to provide holistic patient care are some of the evolutions we have seen at CFEH over the last decade or more.

This interactive webinar will explore these developments in the context of how they may be beneficial to you in your every- day practice. During the course of this presentation, we will workshop some of the benefits, and identify some of the challenges and opportunities associated with each of these through the use of breakout rooms that enable you to collaborate and explore ideas with your colleagues.

Learning Objectives

  • Evaluate the potential impact of incorporating telehealth into your practice in terms of patient care, workload, convenience and any associated challenges
  • Understand what patients are suitable for co-management, and identify red-flags that might indicate an escalation of care is necessary
  • Understand the benefits of holistic patient care and develop ideas on how this might be effectively integrated into your practice

Max CPD hours awarded: 1.5
