Ophthalmologists, optometrists and allied healthcare professionals can benefit from this two-day course that updates their practices by incorporating evidenced-based therapies, surgical techniques and scientific insights. The program planning team has identified clinical practice gaps in the diagnosis and treatment of ophthalmic diseases and complications of those treatments corresponding to the 10 practice emphasis areas (PEAs) identified by the American Board of Ophthalmology.
Through multiple interactive sessions, attendees of this educational activity will be able to identify the tests, treatments and potential complications related to a number of ophthalmic diseases / conditions. An evidence based approach will be used including the use of pattern recognition related to diagnoses of disease and determining the cause of potential complications of surgical and non-surgical interventions. Also introduced will be the integrated management of ophthalmic care related to systemic eye disease (such as diabetes) as related to American Academy of Ophthalmology/Physician Consortium for Performance Improvement®/ National Committee for Quality Assurance (AMA 2010) as well as standards related to diagnosing ophthalmic diseases through evaluation of the retina, the optic nerve head, the anterior segment and ocular surface using current and new technology.
