New roles for nurses
We continue to enable non-medical staff to learn new skills and take on responsibilities previously within the remit only of doctors. This ensures that everyone’s professional expertise is used to the best effect and provides improvements to patient care. For example, some nurses at Moorfields are now qualified to administer intravitreal injections to patients with wet age-related macular degeneration – a service previously provided only by medical staff – while others are trained to provide laser treatment for posterior capsular opacification, a common side-effect of cataract surgery.
Clinical Ophthalmic Practice PG Cert
This is the first blended learning postgraduate programme in the UK to be designed for nurses and allied health professionals working in ophthalmology. Developed by two global centres of expertise, Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and UCL, this collaboration ensures that students have access to experts in their fields.
Dependant on your requirements, we can train your staff either within our classrooms at Moorfields or within your own site.
