Implementing a non-medical intravitreal injection service 

This highly sought after intravitreal injection course has had a national and global impact by enabling numerous institutions to establish their own non-medical delivered IVT injection services. With an increasing demand in treatment for people with eye conditions such as diabetic macular oedema, retina vein occlusion and age-related macular degeneration, this innovative model of care has radically reduced waiting times for the therapy and improved clinical outcomes as well as subsequent patient related quality of adjusted life year scores.

Course Overview

This is a hybrid course, which participants can attend in-person or virtually. It will feature live interactive sessions with senior executives who possess great wealth of experience in retinal care. The course will also include full access to self-paced learning materials with several demonstration videos and supplementary reading lists.

If you attend in person, your day will finish with a wet lab session where you will have the opportunity to practice administering injections. You will also have the additional option to attend the medical retina department for a half day observership on the morning of the day before the course, to watch injections being performed. 

Virtual attendees will be able to watch a video demonstration of the injection process and hear a presentation from one of our consultant ophthalmologists about it, with the chance to discuss and ask questions.

I am COA (certified ophthalmic assistant) by IJCAHPO. I am the first one from my country, Mauritius island, to obtain this accreditation, and also the first one here to participate in the two-day virtual course, Nurse-Led Intravitreal Treatment. I work under the supervision of Dr Zia Carrim, consultant ophthalmologist at Leeds Teaching hospital in UK and founder of The Eye Clinic in Mauritius. I have always assisted him in preparing for an intravitreal treatment, until I was encouraged to practice. The nurse-led intravitreal course is indeed rewarding for both medical and non-medical professionals. The contents delivered were relevant to the subject, and to me the two most enjoyable parts were the Injection Process by Mr Adam Mapani  and Nurse experience by Mr Gavin Kissoondeeal.
