Each issue has its own educational objectives that were established to guide the development of the content.
3. Instructional Format
Glaucoma Now is a 12-16 page, newsletter-format, enduring material published 2-3 times each year. Each issue has a major theme. Within each issue there are four sections, each of which treats some aspect of the theme in a predefined way.
4. Needs Assessment
Advances in the diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma are taking place with enormous speed. On November 10 2017, a PubMed search under the keywords “glaucoma” found 2821 peer-reviewed papers on the subject published in the current year alone.
From a clinical perspective, however, glaucoma is neither diagnosed nor treated exclusively by sub-specialists. Rather, glaucoma is widely treated by comprehensive and general ophthalmologists, who are greatly challenged to keep up with that volume of research.
In each of the projected issues of Glaucoma Now, a major topic area in glaucoma damage mechanisms, pathogenesis, diagnosis, or management will be addressed by pre-eminent global authorities in the field. These individuals are asked to review and summarize advances with an emphasis on incorporating them into everyday practice.
To help us put this current edition together within the tight timeframe mentioned above we would like to ask you for the following:
