January 2 – 8, 2011
If you lead a hospital you should understand the clinical background of eye care in addition to the best management practices in care delivery. This course equips you for the latter, sharing the analytical tools you will need for evidence-based decision making. After the course, you will be able to better handle clinical load swings, find opportunities for cost control, evaluate patient satisfaction as a driver for future uptake of eye care services, develop information systems for monitoring operational efficiency, link human resource management to care priorities, and design a larger network of eye care services around your hospital.
February 01 – 26, 2011
This course will guide your hospital through establishment of a medical records department (MRD). It is best suited for professionals involved in day to day medical records management or those seeking to start such a department. You will learn how to develop a system to generate, record, maintain, and analyze information from medical records; apply IT to improve department efficiency; and use records and analysis for internal decision making.
February 7 – 19, 2011
This two-week course admits programme managers at grant making nonprofits and foundations and teaches them first about the clinical and management aspects of eye care, then about how to strategically influence programme design and execution. If you oversee a portfolio of eye care programmes and want to optimize them to serve to specific populations, manage their ongoing growth, and enable them to be as resource efficient as possible, then you should attend this course. Past participants come from all major international eye care organizations.
April 14 – May 21, 2011
If you are in a position to influence the operations of an eye care hospital and seek to maximize its patient throughput in a financially sustainable, long-term way, then this six-week course will guide you through the entire process. Constantly focused on making your own eye hospital as efficient as possible, course modules cover general management skills, department-specific management skills, and how to coordinate work across multiple departments, from housekeeping to the operating theatre. More than two hundred participants have come through this program, representing 19 different countries.
