Ophthalmologists and Optometrists – working together working differently

Start: 2nd March 2018

Type: Seminar

Description: This is the third annual seminar joint with the College of Optometrists. We aim to bring together commissioners, clinical professionals of all types from community, primary and secondary care and managers of ophthalmology services to break down traditional barriers, learn from and help each other to innovate and sustain cost effective, efficient, patient centred eye services. We examine how decisions are made on eye service provision and change by commissioners and how local eye health networks can be best involved, and learn about national programmes to support innovation such development of a consistent national training programme for clinical professionals to deliver common clinical competency roles and a national elective care transformation project. We hear from those who have delivered successful new models of care, and how they assessed “success”, and from those who are on the journey. We will hold a “surgery” to help those at the early phase of transformation to move forward and overcome barriers.
