Optometrists are invited to participate in a study that will evaluate new practice tools for age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
The 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, University of Melbourne.
Participating optometrists will be required to complete a short online survey and 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.
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). It has achieved CPD accreditation from Optometry Australia, with up to 10 Therapeutic CPD points available and there is no cost to participate.
