Clinical audit finds collaborative care model is safe and effective

A clinical audit of collaborative care models delivered by the Department of Optometry and Vision Sciences in partnership with the Melbourne Eye Clinic (MEC) and the Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) has found them to be both safe and successful.

The delivery of eyecare with our partners has been proven to align to current best practice, with both patients and parents reporting an overall positive experience in collaborative care models. This shared care model has enabled over 150 patients to have improved eyecare access by reducing the time required for appointments.

Findings from the clinical audit done were presented at the World Congress of Optometry’s O=MEGA23 conference by Dr Andrew Huhtanen. For more information on the collaborative care model visit here.
