Common Systemic Diseases (CET)

C-51956. This course is approved for 1 non-interactive CET point for optometrists and dispensing opticians only. As Eye Care Practitioners we are taught to take a careful general medical history and note down medication taken by the patient. But how many of us consider the effect of that medication and the condition it is treating on the patient’s general health. In many cases the ECP may be the only health professional that the patient has consulted within a 12 month period. Having a basic understanding of common systemic conditions and their treatment allows ECPs to spot potential problems and refer them to the patient’s GP before they begin to adversely or permanently affect the patient’s health.
