Opportunity for optometrists to participate in a study of new practice tools for age-related macular degeneration (AMD)

We are seeking Australian optometrists to volunteer for a study that is evaluating different clinical practice tools for managing AMD.

Optometrists will be required to complete a short online survey, complete some case study questions, participate in an educative workshop, and audit their clinical practices (involving the evaluation of clinical practice records for 10 patients with AMD, at two time points).

All data contributed to the project will be in a de-identified format and confidentiality will be strictly maintained.

There are no costs to participate. The project has achieved CPD accreditation from Optometry Australia, with up to 10 Therapeutic CPD points available.

This study is being conducted by Sena Gocuk (M.Phil Candidate), Dr Laura Downie and Prof Allison McKendrick from the Department of Optometry and Vision Sciences, The University of Melbourne.

For further information please email Sena (sgocuk@student.unimelb.edu.au) or scan the QR code.

The project is funded by a Macular Disease Foundation of Australia (MDFA) research grant and has been approved by the University of Melbourne Human Research Ethics Committee (#1851607).
