Vision Study Wrap Up

CPF joined the Welch-Allyn PediaVision study with Dr. Donahue when the need for more effective vision screening was noticed. The purpose of the study was to be the first large scale, multi-center evaluation of photoscreening in the medical home. 

CPF members were very eager to participate in this study; 12 CPF community sites participated and worked very hard to record their referrals and to promote the need for vision screening. 

A huge thank you to Dr. Sean Donahue, the Vanderbilt Eye Institute, Sandy Owings, Janet Cates, Jana Bregman, and the following participating practices:
Nurture Pediatrics
The Pediatric Center of Tullahoma
The Children's Clinic of Nashville
Rivergate Pediatrics
Children's Clinic East-Mt. Juliet, Hermitage, Lebanon
Brentwood Pediatrics
Capstone Pediatrics-Southern Hills, Centennial, Lebanon
Meharry Pediatric Group

We are so delighted to have been a part of this ground-breaking study and look forward to following how it impacts our community!

So many wonderful suggestions came out of this study as well! I thought it was very helpful that Dr. Donahue pointed out the screening technique used is highly dependent on the developmental level of the child.
