    Develop a business plan to develop an information package for enucleation.

    In 2017/18 approximately 130 patients had an enucleation at the Eye Ear Hospital Melbourne. Although a small number compared to the overall surgeries performed, enucleation and the associated vision loss, is a procedure that can have significant psychological and physical impacts for patients. (McLean 2011, Moschos 2014).

    Feedback from patients and carers admitted to the Short Stay Care Centre has revealed that many patients feel that relevant and clear information provided to them about enucleation before surgery is limited and difficult to find. The Nurse Unit Manager of this department has a prosthetic eye and often spends time with patients prior to surgery answering their questions which are largely around the procedure, management of the prosthetic (removal and insertion) and the impact on activities such as sport and driving.

    It would be of benefit to patients and the Eye and Ear to conduct a survey and a focus group of patients who have had an enucleation to identify information patients feel would be of value before surgery. This information could then be used to develop an information pack of relevance for patients using both video media and print media. This information could be made available on the hospitals website and therefore be available to other eye hospitals and health organisations locally and internationally.

    Currently the Nurse Unit Manager of the Short Stay care Unit is working with staff from Marketing and Public Relations to develop a business plan to develop an information package for enucleation.
