IAPB webinar: sustain the environment and save costs

Tuesday, May 28, 2019 - 11:00 - 12:00

Ophthalmology is one of the high volume outpatient specialties, wherein patients end up making multiple visits even for simple conditions like cataract and refractive errors, and of course for complex and chronic conditions. It also has a high surgical throughput, with cataract surgeries accounting for a significant volume of the total. Large amounts of disposable instruments and materials are used in ophthalmology, increasing the carbon footprint.

In this webinar Aravind will share a range of very practical initiatives taken towards promoting environmental sustainability that also provide better patient experience and financial benefits to the organisation. Although Aravind is a large hospital and organisation, the webinar will provide practical information for eye health workers in all contexts, be it low, middle or high-income settings, and with high or low patient throughput. Furthermore, the webinar will provide information on IAPB’s Environmental Sustainability ‘community of practice’, so you can stay in touch with developments, and also share your own experiences and resources.
