Nurse and Allied Health Program Overview
Attend the Hawaiian Eye Nurse and Allied Health Program to gain expert perspective from all aspects of your practice. Take advantage of this opportunity to interact with world renowned physicians, expert nurses and technicians and successful administrators all in one room. With the ophthalmic nurse and technician in mind, physicians will explain the latest technologies available and how they can be used in your office; nurses and technicians will discuss efficiency — how to maximize your current expertise and obtain new skills; and administrators will explain the necessary changes in coding.
This program is specifically designed for ophthalmic nurses and allied health professionals.
After completing the nurse/allied health program, you should be able to:
- Examine new developments in surgical and diagnostic procedures to provide
optimal vision to cataract and refractive patients.
- Compare and contrast treatments for age-related macular degeneration (AMD),
and evaluate updates on retinal testing and surgical procedures.
- Identify new diagnostic tests and treatments for ocular surface disease.
- Explain how optical coherence tomography (OCT) may assist in determining
the appropriate treatment for glaucoma and assess therapeutic options for the management of the pediatric glaucoma patient.
- Evaluate the effect the changing ophthalmic environment has on supervising
staff, ICD-10, and online reviews.
