Description:

This workshop is designed to cover the important aspects of preparing to evaluate the tbi/concussion patient before during and after the initial examination. There is significant staff involvement that is necessary throughout the process, which is the reason that this course is open to both optometrists and paraoptometric staff members. It takes a team to provide the proper support for these patients. This course will cover hands on testing that paraoptometrics perform, as well as optometric testing. This workshop will provide information and handouts that can be taken back to the practice. It this information is new to the attendee, it will take some time to incorporate the basics of this workshop. Office meetings with staff are necessary to get everyone on board. The course will not provide therapy recommendations, but will address where to refer patients that require more specialized testing and treatment.

Representation matters in optometry

Black doctors of optometry seek to grow those numbers.
