志愿者眼科专家

我们知名的志愿者眼科专家团队(Volunteer Faulty),是所有奥比斯全球眼科培训项目的核心。在过去的三十多年,透过教导及培训当地眼科医疗人员来预防和治疗可防治盲疾,一直是奥比斯的工作重点。

目前世界眼科医疗服务其中一个最严重的缺口,是缺乏训练有素的医疗人员。奥比斯的全球志愿者眼科专家团队,组成了全面的网络,提供眼科专科教学和指导,提升我们合作伙伴医院的技术、服务水平以及病人医疗服务的水平。这正是创立奥比斯的原因 - 在世界各地为眼科医疗人员提供可持续性的培训及支持。

我们的全球志愿者眼科专家团队由来自30多个国家、约400位志愿者眼科医生、护士、麻醉师及生物医学工程师组成,他们都是世界顶尖的眼科医疗专家,用自己的私人休假时间作为志愿者无偿参加奥比斯项目,向发展中国家的眼科医护人员传授技术,协助持续改善眼科医疗水平。

透过与当地合作伙伴医院和医生沟通,我们度身设计能符合他们实际需要的教学计划。我们的志愿者专家团队进行培训、提供工具进行较复杂的手术、改善手术成果,当然最重要的是帮助有需要的人重获视力。

我们的志愿者医疗专家团队会透过我们的远程医疗教学平台CyberSight,为世界各地的医护人员提供指导。全球75%的眼疾是可以预防或治疗的,但其中89%的眼疾患者生活在低收入地区,缺乏医疗资源,这样的培训正可以在最有需要的地区,让寻求眼科医疗服务变得更便捷,更有可能。

On Board The Flying Eye Hospital

I think if I wasn't an anaesthetist, I would have liked to have been a pilot. There's a lot of similarities, in terms of responsibility, it's a practical role, it's science based. In the end though - I like my patients. Most of my anaesthetic practice is with children.

BMJ Christmas charity appeal: Orbis's Flying Eye Hospital-going places where other charities often can't

I think if I wasn't an anaesthetist, I would have liked to have been a pilot. There are a lot of similarities between the two: in terms of responsibility, and that it's a practical, science based role.
