NANOS’ Curriculum Committee, staff from Univ. of Utah’s Eccles Health Science Library, and TDS Health collaborated to curate and produce NANOS NExT, a structured database and curriculum for practitioners and trainees who evaluate patients with visual and neurological complaints.
Now available from TDS Health, the goal of the NExT is to enhance clinical examination skills of learners at basic, intermediate and advanced training levels. The curriculum will meet the needs for practitioners in a variety of specialties including physical medicine, physical therapy, primary care, and otolaryngology. See below to learn more about this valuable resource.
The North American Neuro-ophthalmology Society (NANOS) Neuro-ophthalmology Examination Techniques (NExT) curriculum covers the 6 core-competencies- patient care, medical knowledge, practice-based learning and improvement, interpersonal and professional skills, professionalism and systems-based practice.
Learning Objectives: Upon completion of NANOS NExT, learners will be able to:
- Discuss the components of neuro-ophthalmologic examination in a clinical setting.
- Describe modifications of examination techniques used in the evaluation of comatose, pediatric and non-organic visual loss subjects.
- Apply relevant clinical and ancillary diagnostic techniques in a subject with visual disorder.
