Mater Group is pleased to launch a practice implementation course which provides a comprehensive guide for clinicians and managers to establish a functional diabetic retinopathy screening service in their practice.
The course is based on the findings of a three year National Health and Medical Research Council trial which identified that general practices, with appropriate camera and in-practice training, achieved mean effective diabetic retinopathy screening rates of 99% compared with an NHMRC estimated national rate of 50%.
The course includes perspectives of patients and practitioners regarding optimal screening and is suitable for urban, rural and Aboriginal Medical Service settings.
It is conducted through GP patient audits, discussions with eye specialists, practice team meetings, implementation and review of system changes and has an online component.
It can be undertaken as a practice or GP-only training. The online self-test allows GPs to be confident in the accuracy of their post training image interpretation.
