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 the most current trends in refractive and cataract surgery, including femtosecond laser surgery for cataracts, secondary IOLs and concerns regarding cataract surgery in long and short eyes.
- Explain the perioperative periods for glaucoma lasers and surgeries, and the genetic and pregnancy risk factors for glaucoma as well as imaging techniques used to monitor the progression of this disease.
- Cite three examples of compliance in the ophthalmic setting, triage ocular emergencies and explain how a modified team approach increases productivity in the ophthalmology practice.
- Distinguish the current status of intravitreal drug treatment plans, and the current applications of optical coherence tomography in retina.
- Compare and contrast corneal cross linking and its current applications with DSAEK; explain recurrent erosion syndrome and treatments for ocular surface disease.
