EMHS Excellence Awards

EMHS Excellence Awards

At this year’s East Metropolitan Health Service Excellence Awards,  two nursing research projects were finalists.

The Nurse Led Glaucoma Assessment Project

This project evaluated a nurse led clinic  to address a back log in glaucoma patients receiving specialist eye care.

The clinic at RPH provided an extra 512 appointments for non complex glaucoma patients which then allowed 512 more complex glaucoma patients to be seen by our ophthalmologists.
