This submission has been prepared by Vision 2020 Australia in response to the Revised Outreach Service Delivery Standards and Reporting Template, which encompass a range of programs:
- Medical Outreach Indigenous Chronic Disease Program (MOICDP);
- Healthy Ears Program;
- Eye and Ear Surgical Support (EESS); and
- Visiting Optometrists Scheme (VOS).
Our feedback identifies both changes that should be made to the draft documents within the context of the current process review, and amendments to the current programs that would require change through a broader policy review, which we understand will occur at a future date.
In total, 13 recommendations are made across those two sections of the proposal following detailed consideration by a range of organisations actively involved in the planning, delivery and promotion of eye outreach programs.
Vision 2020 Australia and its members will continue to actively advocate for a full review of eye outreach program guidelines to occur in the coming period.
