MODELS OF EYE SERVICE DELIVERY
Credit points: 15
This subject introduces students to the importance of quality, efficient, patient-centred delivery of eye health services. Students will develop an understanding of the relationship between health policies, evidence-based practice and quality improvement. Using an enquiry-based learning program, students will learn how to design, implement and evaluate quality improvement programs in clinical settings. Students will also develop an appreciation for the numerous issues, drivers, demands, complexities and consequent impacts related to change and improvement in the clinical setting. This subject will be delivered at the Eye & Ear Hospital clinical school so as to draw on real clinical examples in an orthoptic context, and will equip students to progress to the Orthoptic Clinical Practicum subjects.
