Lee, Amanda

Authors



Abstract

This is the second in a series of two articles discussing prescribing in advanced ophthalmic nursing practice in the UK. With the support of ophthalmic nurse practitioners this article explores issues relating to medicines management, the patient's experience and clinical effectiveness. The benefits to patients and professional staff in expedient, quality and cost-effective treatment within ophthalmic care, are identified. Exemplars of ophthalmic nursing practice highlight how services may be significantly more streamlined though non medical prescribing in hospitals.
