We with the RNIB to enhance their understanding of health provision for wet age-related macular degeneration across the UK. Our focus was on identifying pathways and procedures that will maximise patient care and ensure rapid referral that will prevent vision loss.
We conducted a large-scale piece of mixed-methods research for the RNIB to enhance their understanding of health provision for wet age-related macular degeneration across the UK. We conducted almost 200 depth interviews with quantitative measures, and a separate quantitative survey. To gain a full picture of service provision and compare patient and clinical perspectives, we interviewed patients, carers, ophthalmologists, optometrists, commissioners, and others involved in the clinical process.
Our findings provided a clear set of recommendations about how to improve awareness of the condition, reduce diagnosis bottlenecks, and improve patient care. Read the public report.
