Ophthalmology common clinical competency framework

A new ophthalmology common clinical competency framework (CCCF) has been launched to provide standards of knowledge and skill required for non-medical eye healthcare professionals as part of an ophthalmologist-led multidisciplinary team of qualified optometrists, orthoptists, ophthalmic nurses and ophthalmic clinical scientists who have taken on expanded roles.

The framework promises to help this workforce in a hospital setting to continue to help manage demand and provide safe and efficient care for patients.
