Effective referrals

This lecture webinar will examine how to communicate effectively when referring a patient so that the person triaging the referral is able to make the best decision in sending the patient to the most appropriate setting for their consultation. Cases and referrals discussed will cover ocular conditions found commonly in optometric practice. 

Please note, this webinar is based on Wendy’s Optometry Tomorrow 2018 and Bitesize 2018 discussion workshop, so if you attended this session at either event, you will not be able to apply for these points again.
