We have developed these new eLearning courses for patients, friends, family, carers and anyone who wants to deepen their knowledge of eye care and eye conditions. These eLearning courses build on the information we provide our patients as standard and delve deeper into the work we do at Moorfields. The online learning module takes the patient on a journey covering all aspects related to their condition from referral to initial diagnosis and ongoing treatment and care; all presented in a fun, interactive and user-friendly way.
We took a holistic approach in creating the modules as we understand the impact of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), uveitis and glaucoma extends beyond questions about treatment and management, to a person living with eye diseases. Consequently, we included advice on both optical and non-optical tools for patients in varying stages of the disease, as well as pointers on how to cope with the practical aspects of daily living.
