Welcome to the Glaucoma Professional Education Programme...
The Glaucoma Professional Education Programme is for New Zealand and Australian optometrists, nurses, orthoptists, ophthalmic technicians and other eye health professionals interested in furthering their understanding of glaucoma and its clinical management. Registered optometrists can earn credits as part of their ongoing professional registration requirements.
The programme is largely case-based, comprising a series of seminars based on clinical case studies. The seminars cover a planned programme of topics which will link academic knowledge with practice. As well as questions and answers to accompany each case, there is an academic discussion of the important features of the case described.
The programme consists of 7 courses, each with a case history, questions and answers for self-directed learning, followed by an associated web-based examination. The examination associated with each case is made up of 25 multi-choice and true/false questions.
All cases have been produced by qualified glaucoma specialists. The 2017 cases have been compiled and prepared by Dr Hannah Kersten in conjunction with Professor Helen Danesh-Meyer.
Enrolments for the 2017 Glaucoma Professional Education Programme will be commencing soon.
