Following on from work on standardised patient information and professional standards in refractive surgery, the RCO would like to invite patients to discuss two additional goals for UK refractive surgery.
A national data set
As electronic patient record systems become more widespread in refractive surgery, the opportunities to collect outcome data as a by-product of routine clinical care are increasing. The RCO would like to gauge support for developing a national data set in refractive surgery with the future aim of informing a national database to include refractive surgery.
Patients who have poor outcomes in refractive surgery may lose confidence in their original provider. They are then left with an open ended financial liability in relation to revision treatment. One of the key recommendations of the Keogh Report is that there should be an improved system of redress. The RCO would like to discuss ideas for possible improvement in this difficult area.
