State of Vision Rehab services in the age of COVID-19

State of Vision Rehabilitation Services in COVID-19 Weekly Program Leaders Call

As we all recognize, COVID-19 has created an environment requiring new approaches to the provision of Vision Rehabilitation Services.  VisionServe Alliance is launching a weekly call to serve as a platform for Program Directors or Managers (CEO’s are welcome to join as well) to present information, share resources, and answer questions on the subject. This call will be via Zoom every Thursday at 3 pm EST.

Register to attend

The information presented and gathered through these calls is one aspect of the field’s effort to learn about and assure best practices as we have all had to pivot in this crisis.

There are multiple layers of work being conducted on this subject by many of our national organizations including ACVREP, AER, APH, and AFB.  Mississippi State University and VSA are exploring a collaborative project that would facilitate the development of best practices (and perhaps standards down the road) for the provision of remote vision rehabilitation services for organizations and includes a research component. Ultimately all organizations involved in the field will have input and be asked to validate these. There is exciting work afoot in the field of vision rehabilitation, that has the potential to greatly impact the extent of our reach.
