Clinical Practice I

Code 12508
Year 2
Semester S2
ECTS Credits 6
Workload OT(30H)/PL(30H)
Scientific area Optometria
Entry requirements Knowledge of Anatomy and Ocular Physiology, Fundamentals of Optometry and Ophthalmic Optics
Learning outcomes Application of optometric techniques in clinical situations in real context, namely, in the Vision Science Clinical and Experimental Center and UBIMedical, where students must demonstrate knowledge and apply and develop communication and practical skills. To develop critical thinking and skill in the decision-making process of basic optometric situations, namely at the level of anamnesis, objective and subjective refractive examination, and study of non-strabismic binocular vision in young adults
Syllabus Knowledge and practical / clinical skills should be demonstrated in specific skills such as: (1) performing a precise anamnesis in patients with different optometric conditions; (3) being able to communicate with patients who present poor or nonverbal communication, reticent or misleading; (4) knowing how to communicate bad news to patients empathically and comprehensibly; (5) knowing how to manage information in a safe, ethical and confidential manner; (6) understanding the legal, professional, and ethical obligations of an optometrist; (7) knowing how to create and maintain clear, accurate and current patient records; (8) being able to interpret and respond appropriately to existing records; (9) being able to make a judgment regarding referral and an understanding of referral pathways; (10) knowing how to determine refraction in patients with common optometry problems using the most appropriate objective and subjective techniques;

Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria Teaching methodologies integrating: practical laboratory classes for practice of clinical procedures and resolution of exercises to exemplify the calculation of vision parameters necessary to clinical practice; tutorial classes with real patients for supervised application of selected clinical procedures; training complemented with self-study. Evaluation using practical tests of clinical procedures in laboratory environment and clinical context with real patients.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
