SLT Clinical Audit
Ophthalmologists are invited to enrol in the SLT Clinical Audit – evaluating the impact of Glaucoma Australia educational interventions on patients with glaucoma; at the same time determining success rates of SLT, IOP reduction and factors predictive for that success.
In an effort to improve overall patient understanding about glaucoma and its management, Glaucoma Australia has devised a patient focussed education intervention, designed to improve patient comprehension, reduce anxiety, improve adherence to treatment and overall empower patients to make appropriate decisions regarding their health management.
The Glaucoma Australia Education for SLT is a randomised study that investigates the health-related impact of telephone based education for patients booked for SLT treatment, in terms of glaucoma-related comprehension, levels of anxiety and future management plans.
RANZCO has approved this CPD activity for 30 points in the Clinical Expertise category level 2.
