Welcome to the Glaucoma Professional Education Programme...

The Glaucoma Professional Education Programme is for New Zealand 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.

Enrolments for the 2019 Glaucoma Professional Education Programme have now closed and testing has finished. This year's participants can check their answers via their Programme Report page once logged in.

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 2019 cases were compiled and prepared by Dr Jinny Yoon in conjunction with Professor Helen Danesh-Meyer and Dr Hannah Kersten.
