In late 2013, the Joint Commission on Allied Health Personnel (JCAHPO) hosted a webinar series on the Going Blind and Going Forward Outreach Campaign called “Going Blind and Going Forward: Pearls and Resources for the Eye Care Team.” The series included three webinars on blind and low vision rehabilitation tools and resources. Joe presented in Part 2, Going Blind and Going Forward: A Patient’s Perspective on Vision Loss, his session brought in over 500 attendees.
JCAHPO and the Reader’s Digest Partners for Sight Foundation have now made these courses available to the general public as free resources!

JCAHPO’s membership is comprised of ophthalmic allied health personnel including assistants, technicians, and medical technologists. At their 2012 annual convention, Joe provided the keynote address to a sold out audience of over 600 attendees. Since then we have developed a relationship with the organization, which is eager to train their members in patient education and empowerment.
