Skills Transfer Course (STC)Public Health and Global Ophthalmology


Despite advances in diagnostic and surgical techniques, our remote and marginalized populations are often inadequately managed. The purpose of this workshop is to explore various modalities, such as smartphone technologies, telemedicine and mobile unit, to reach remote communities and marginalized urban populations. Some of our newer members of the Canadian Association for Public Health and Global Ophthalmology will discuss how to get involved in outreach programs and public and global eye health research. 

Learning Objectives

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify applications of smartphone technology that could have implications for testing eye diseases
  • Compare remote testing modalities, such as apps, mobile units and telemedicine
  • Discuss the utility of remote testing modalities
