The accredited 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 12 CD and 2 GPR credits as part of their ongoing professional registration requirements.
About the 2023 Programme
The programme provides an opportunity for eye health professionals to maintain their competence in diagnosing and treating glaucoma, assisting them in delivering the highest level of service and most up-to-date treatments available. The 2023 cases were compiled and prepared by Professor Helen Danesh-Meyer and Dr. Hannah Kersten.
There are four cases, which contain a combination of patient history, clinical examination findings, optic nerve photographs, visual field test results and optical coherence tomography scans as appropriate, and any other relevant clinical information. There are 40 optic discs to grade.
You can complete the programme in any order – optic disc grading is now available and the 4 case studies uploaded soon.
It is advisable to complete the programme using the same IP address.
