Eye HealthPathways Training

RWAV, together with the Primary Health Networks, are now delivering Eye HealthPathways training to GPs, Aboriginal health workers and clinical staff at Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations (ACCHOs) across Victoria, thanks to recently obtaining a retinal camera from the Australian College of Optometry (ACO). The training is a part of the ACO’s co-led Eye Health Equipment and Training Project.

Two training sessions were delivered in Bendigo and District Aboriginal Co-operative with Rumbalara Aboriginal Cooperative in August 2018. Discussions were positive about using the online portal and the different eye programs that can be accessed through RWAV, in particular, the Eye and Ear Surgical Support Service.The Eye HealthPathways is a free web-based portal designed for use during consultations to assist clinicians to navigate patients through what can be a complex primary and acute health care system. This enables a more seamless client journey to ensure Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients obtain the most effective care at the right time in the most appropriate setting.
