This unit will see students build on and extend their understanding of the sciences underpinning optometric practice through engagement in problem-based learning cases of common but more complex optometric conditions.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Integrate and synthesise information that would inform an appropriate optometric assessment;
2. Effectively interpret clinical data to assist in the diagnose of an eye/visual system disorder;
3. Compile management plans for 'patients' with eye/visual system disorders; and
4. Communicate effectively with patients and other health/allied health care professionals.
10 hours per week of problem-based learning.
