E-Learning Buzz

JCAHPO has been fortunate to partner with two very important charitable foundations to help deliver online learning content designed to help those who work with people with low vision.

Partners for Sight Foundation
The Reader's Digest Partners for Sight Foundation provided an unrestricted educational grant to JCAHPO. The grant made possible three webinars, collectively entitled "Going Blind and Going Forward: Pearls and Resources for the Eye Care Team", which aired live in October 2013. This webinar series is now available to the general public as free resources on our ACTIONED website. CE quizzes for each webinar are available for purchase on ACTIONED®!

Delta Gamma Foundation
JCAHPO also partnered with the Delta Gamma Foundation to deliver four webinars that address eye health in children, education, and research involving sight preservation and prevention and early intervention in problems affecting sight in children. This webinar series, originally aired live in February 2014, will be made available as free education resources on our ACTIONED website beginning in May 2014.

Feel free to share these important sessions with your staff and patients!
