Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Ophthalmology Volume 51, Issue 12: Management of Glaucoma/Effects of Health Care Reform.
The goals of this program are to improve the management of glaucoma and to prepare clinicians for the effects of health care reform. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Compare the strengths and limitations of different tests for detecting and following the progression of glaucoma.
2. Assess the data supporting the efficacy of cataract surgery as a glaucoma procedure.
3. Elaborate on the association between myopia and glaucoma.
4. Incorporate practices that increase the likelihood that patients from different cultures receive optimal care.
5. Anticipate and prepare for changes in practice associated with health care reform.
