Clinical Knowledge Evaluation - Glaucoma

                         Information Flyer

New Education Program

The ACO has launched the first in a series of new and unique online programs for optometrists to enable them to self assess their knowledge of specific eye conditions and their ability to provide an initial diagnosis of the condition, within a simulated and timed patient consultation.

The program developed by the ACO in consultation with the wider optometry community, was piloted by registered optometrists (including ACO members) and aims to ultimately support the delivery of best practice eye health care. The first program to be released is for initial glaucoma diagnosis and will be followed by other self-assessment programs including diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, high myopia and anterior eye.

ACO-Clinical Knowledge Evaluation - Glaucoma 

The new ACO–CKE Glaucoma provides optometrists with the ability to self assess their glaucoma diagnostic skills online within a simulated and timed patient consultation using real life patient case studies.

This CKE Glaucoma program aims to assist optometrists in assessing their diagnostic knowledge and selecting further education to improve any learning gaps. Nine clinical skills are assessed by using real and practical case studies reflecting critical thinking and decision making processes which occur in clinical practice. A time cap on each test presents an additional level of real-time challenge.

The program provides colour coded results, benchmarking against peers, specific tailored feedback and ACO further education options.
