Criteria for the definition of clinical standards in a low-vision center
Cannao M., Goergen E., Limoli P. G., Martinoli M. C.
Recently many low vision centers and services have been started in Italy, but they are random distributed in the national territory, poorly coordinated and generally lack sound programs of intervention. This particular field needs instead a high level of organization, a sound mapping of the resources and an evaluation of the clinical and rehabilitative quality standards. In order to have a correct knowledge of these parameters, data should be collected through a record enlisting:
‹ type of center/service;
‹ type of patients;
‹ organization of the structure;
‹ instrumental and professional equipment;
Further data concerning efficacy, efficiency, accessibility and level of the center/service should be also recorded. Such information could lead to a general evaluation of the clinical standards and could help in addressing patients and adjusting diagnostic/therapeutic procedures.
