3 December Webinar
| Lean on Me

The Moorfields Schwartz Round team invites you and your team to attend the Online Schwartz Round Thursday 3rd December 2020 titled “Lean On Me”. Our panel members Nima Ghadiri, Locum Consultant Ophthalmologist, Moorfields Eye Hospital, UK, Shannon Joseph, Consultant Ophthalmologist Kellogg Eye Center (Ann Arbor, USA) will be sharing their experiences.

Schwartz Rounds are facilitated, confidential meetings where staff from all backgrounds and professions come together to discuss the emotional and social challenges associated with their jobs. They offer staff a regular scheduled time and place in which they can openly and honestly discuss the personal impact of working in health care.  Rounds are Trust non-problem solving, with the focus of rounds instead being on the human dimension of healthcare and personal experience.  

We have scheduled our virtual meeting on the 3rd December, titled “Lean On Me”. Time: 12.45pm London time – 02.00pm London time.
02.00pm – 02.30pm: WAEH – Member Meeting

Tele-ophthalmology Takes Hold

During the coronavirus pandemic, we’ve all had to modify the way we do things in order to minimize exposure to the virus. At the Wilmer Eye Institute, Johns Hopkins Medicine, clinicians and researchers have found that some of these modifications have brought unexpected benefits. Conducting Grand Rounds by Zoom, for example, has allowed them to share their knowledge with a broader audience. “We have had over 200 doctors, often from all around the country and sometimes other countries, tuning in to our Grand Rounds,” says Wilmer director Peter J. McDonnell. “People like me have been able to lecture to doctors around the world without leaving the office.”

Call for Projects!

Each year 2 to 3 projects can be lead by WAEH member eye hospitals to help shape and improve ophthalmic care on a global scale. Each project can be budgeted with a budget of 7.500 euro.
