Dorothy Fiadoyor's Training

Dorothy Fiadoyor, 53, Ophthalmic Principal Nursing Officer from Ghana, underwent a 6-month customized training program from October 2014 to March 2015 at the Academy of Eye Care Education, LVPEI, Hyderabad. The program, a mix of pediatric nursing, counseling and vision rehabilitation, was meant to train her for the pediatric eye care unit at Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, Ghana. Says Dr Vera Adobea Essuman, Head of the Pediatric Center: “Dorothy's training at LVPEI has definitely made a positive impact on our services here. She has set up
our counseling and vision stimulation centre, has been doing the preliminarily screening of pediatric patients and checking their intraocular pressures, is providing enhanced nursing care in the theatre, and is also now working on designing patient counseling material. She has started training other ophthalmic nurses outside the hospital and with time will be able to train nurses across Ghana. Moving ahead, she will be trained by a pediatric ophthalmologist here on orthoptic exercises, and on assisting doctors in the management and monitoring of children with amblyopia. Her other focus area will be to conduct research in her area of practice.”

Dorothy has surely emerged as one of the best trainees LVPEI has had.
