Tele-ophthalmology program in Canada with Diabetes Action Canada

Joint Webinar with Diabetes Action Canada and Fighting Blindness Canada
Monday, November 9, 2020, 11 a.m. ET

Dr. David Maberley, Rebecca Merritt, and Dr. Marie-Carole Boucher

Diabetic retinopathy is a complication of diabetes and accounts for 80% of diabetic-related blindness. It is the leading cause of blindness for working age Canadians.  Early detection of diabetic retinopathy by regular screening effectively avoids vision loss from diabetes as necessary treatments prevent irreversible retina damage.

Telehealth retinal screening programs are an excellent option for those living with diabetes, but not regularly seeing a specialist for their diabetes complications management.  Each province implements their telehealth retinal screening differently and in this webinar we will learn the approaches taken by Diabetes Action Canada investigators in British Columbia, Quebec, and Ontario.  Learn more about the teleheath program.

This webinar is presented by Diabetes Action Canada.
