The Ophthalmic Study Guide: for Nurses and Health Professionals


By (author): Dorothy Field, Julie Tillotson, Mandy McFarlane

Over recent years, an increasing variety of professionals have been involved with the care of ophthalmic patients. The aim underlying the changes of the last 20 years has been to provide an efficient, high quality and cost effective service to patients, which utilises the skills of the multidisciplinary ophthalmic team. This study guide cannot be considered to be a substitute for more formal, assessed education and training for role expansion, but can be considered in terms of being a ?skills escalator? in that those who make good use of it?s contents and use the little ?To do? sections to reflect on and research their practices should be able to develop their basic knowledge and skills in practice more quickly, and develop the habit of self assessment and self directed learning. The simple questions at the end of each chapter can be used for self-testing, or as a basis for questions that mentors could ask their students.

Intravitreal Injections: A Handbook for Ophthalmic Nurse Practitioners and Trainee Ophthalmologists


By (author): Salman Waqar

Intravitreal injections (injections into the eye) are a new form of treatment for various conditions such as age-related macular degeneration, diabetic eye disease and vascular eye problems. The use of these injections has become so widespread that most departments around the world (and particularly in the U.K) do not have enough doctors to meet the service provision demands of an ever increasing number of patients. Many departments have trialed training ophthalmic nurse practitioners as a solution and the number of such specifically trained nurses is set to rise exponentially in the future. This book is meant to be an easy to carry A5 handbook detailing all that an ophthalmic nurse practitioner needs to know about performing the procedure. It is hoped that the book will also be of benefit to trainee ophthalmologists learning the procedure. As this is an emerging area of expertise in ophthalmology, currently there exists no other books on the topic. The readers will benefit from having a single resource detailing all that they need to know about the procedure. This means that nurses will not have to cross reference multiple complicated ophthalmic textbooks. As an A5 handbook, it will be easy to carry and reference in clinics. It is deliberately meant to be concise (around 100 pages), thus concentrating only on the core knowledge required.
