  • Disease Management
  • Attendance - General Attendance
  • COPE - Ophthalmologists/Optometrists
$0.00 This activity will examine risk factors for glaucoma that will assist healthcare professionals (HCPs) in the early identification of this condition in general primary eye care practice. Individual risk factors will be discussed, and pertinent literature will be reviewed to provide insight into how certain factors in combination, such as Krukenberg spindles, homogeneous trabecular meshwork pigmentation and iris transillumination defects can indicate an increased risk and alert HCPs to the presence of this disorder. A new tool will be introduced to help recommend when specific glaucoma testing is indicated.

$0.00 Activity descriptionThere is a great need for sensitive and competent care for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). A key health care issue for adults with IDD is the need for thorough evaluation that avoids diagnostic overshadowing, in which symptoms of a new or underlying health condition are mistakenly attributed to the IDD diagnosis and are not thoroughly assessed.
