Join our webcast

Register now for the launch of Australia’s first national clinical care standard on the care of patients with cataract, hosted by the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care.

Cataract surgery is the most common elective surgery in Australia, with more than 250,000 people undergoing the procedure each year. The Cataract Clinical Care Standard will help health services to streamline pathways of care and access for people with cataract, to ensure that patients are prioritised for cataract surgery or non-surgical alternatives based on clinical need.

Hear from the experts

Join our panel of experts as they discuss best practice cataract care and their own experience of implementing innovation. The conversation will focus on key aspects of care described in the standard including:

  • Referral from primary care
  • Assessment of patients
  • Prioritisation for surgery
  • Post-operative care
  • Helping patients to make an informed choice.
