Update from our first W.I.S.E. Sustainability Scholar in Ophthalmology
Clare Morgan is CSH's first W.I.S.E. (Wales, Ireland, Scotland England) Sustainable Ophthalmology Scholar in Scotland supported by a grant from Bausch and Lomb during 2019. Bausch and Lomb’s funding facilitated Clare to attend two days of Sustainable Healthcare training in London in early 2019 since which she has been focussing on the analysis of the productivity, cost and carbon footprint of cataract surgery using the new ‘Eyefficiency’ software audit tool funded by Standard Chartered Bank’s Seeing is Believing Innovation Fund and hosted by the Centre for Sustainable Healthcare.
Clare is an Ophthalmology Trainee in the North of Scotland Training programme and completed the dataset capture required for a full Eyefficiency “Cataract” programme. She has been linking with other units to do the same. Clare also participated in the Sustainability Challenge event at the 2019 Royal College of Ophthalmologists Congress (also supported by Bausch and Lomb), with guest speakers Professor Cassie Thiel New York University and Melanie Hingorani Chair of RCOphth Professional Standards Committee and UK Ophthalmic Alliance”.
