eLearning Module Profile: Eye Health and Diabetes

RAHC has developed a suite of free online clinical training modules designed especially for health professionals as a resource to provide timely and high quality orientation and learning materials for RAHC Health Professionals (HPs) preparing to work in remote health clinics and services. This month we profile our Eye Health and Diabetes eLearning module.

Eye Health and Diabetes

Developed in conjunction with Melbourne University Indigenous Eye Health Unit this module provides health professionals working in Indigenous communities with an overview of the management of eye care for people with diabetes and draws on findings from the Roadmap to Close the Gap for Vision.

The module provides an understanding of specific modifiable risk factors for diabetic retinopathy, the steps to assessment, clinical grading, diagnosis and referral for diabetic retinopathy. It is designed as a learning resource for health professionals delivering care within primary health care services for Indigenous people, with a particular focus on issues relevant to eye health and diabetes within remote communities.

The Eye Health and Diabetes module is endorsed for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points with RACGP, ACRRM, OBA and APNA.
