Patient Catered Design
“Moorfields Education has designed six educational experiences to empower patients living with AMD, glaucoma and uveitis. They have been developed using patient catered design, where input from patients has been included from beginning to end. Three advisory boards consisting of medical and non medical staff were set up to create and peer review the material made. This content was then designed to be accessible and interactive by educational professionals.”

Marcus Pedersen is the learning technologist for Moorfields Eye Hospital and has overseen the development of this project.

Past Events

Moorfields online course about Children’s Eyecare!

3 March 2021

Hosted by Moorfields Education
logo moorfields education

The course is available from 3 March 2021

Children’s Eyes: An Introduction
Healthcare providers/staff who mainly provide services for adults, and only occasionally see children, often do not feel confident to interact with children with eye/vision problems and their families. This course aims to introduce the learner to the basic concepts of paediatric ophthalmology, in order to give them confidence when approaching children.

The course aims to:

  • support clinicians/clinic staff who wish to develop their skills and build their confidence when working with infants and children
  • support clinicians’ awareness of vision screening programmes, normal/abnormal development of eyes and vision, developmental and acquired eye/vision conditions in children, and the holistic need of the child with sight problems and their family
  • introduce clinicians to common eye conditions in children and to enable them to make appropriate referral decisions for infants and children

Webinar: Infectious Scleritis

Hosted by WAEH Associate member OrBis

Infectious Scleritis: Difficulties in Diagnosis and Management, with Dr. Somasheila Murthy

Sunday, January 31 2021: 09:30 UTC

Scleritis is a rare but grave inflammatory disorder. Although a majority of these cases are immune mediated, a smaller minority are due to infections of the sclera. The two conditions closely mimic each other, and knowledge of the differences aids in rapid diagnosis. If untreated these cases often have poor outcomes, both due to tissue destruction and also due to propagation of the infection with corticosteroids which may have been started for presumed immune mediated scleritis. In this webinar, we present the clinical features, etiological agents, and the differentiating features between immune and infectious scleritis. We also present diagnostic and management guidelines for managing scleral infection.
