A/Prof. Andrew White, Head of Ophthalmology at Westmead Hospital, will lead a PersonalEYES Glaucoma Education Program for optometrists in September. The course will comprise two webinars, a one day masterclass and optional case studies and clinical sessions. Being modular, it will allow optometrists to opt in for single components or register for the course in its entirety.
A/Prof. White was appointed Head of Ophthalmology at Westmead Hospital, NSW in March this year. Recently he has been leading a glaucoma collaborative care trial to assess the diagnosis and management agreement between ophthalmologists and optometrists, following focussed glaucoma diagnosis and management training.
The early results of this trial were shared at a recent Agency for Clinical Innovation (ACI) meeting, Eyes on the Future, and his project received another 12 months of funding soon after.
A/ Prof. White is an invited speaker at multiple major international conferences including the World Glaucoma Congress held last month and the World Ophthalmology Congress in Barcelona next year. He authored the RANZCO Referral Pathway for Glaucoma Management, which can be found on the RANZCO website, publishes numerous clinical papers every year and serves on multiple advisory boards, in particular those for new glaucoma micro-surgical devices, including iStent. He has been conducting private clinics with PersonalEYES in NSW since 2012.
