POPLAR, the Primary Care Ontario Practice-Based Learning and Research Network

Some of the most substantial opportunities for transformative care, QI and research lie within primary care. Clinical research in primary care means that results are more generalizable to daily practice. Primary care practice-based learning and research networks are key building blocks for knowledge production, dissemination and practice improvement.

Access and Analysis of Provincial Administrative Data for Cohort Disclosure to Guide Community-Based Diabetic Retinopathy Screening

Background 

It is recommended that individuals living with diabetes have their eyes examined for signs of retinopathy annually. Even with access to eye care resources across Canada, including tele-ophthalmology, many individuals with diabetes remain unscreened with screening rates lowest in vulnerable populations. A population-based approach to identify, engage, and provide screening is needed. 

Increasing Diabetic Retinopathy Screening Rates Utilizing Provincial Healthcare Administrative Data

Background

Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is the leading cause of blindness in working age Canadians. Despite all eye care resources, including tele-ophthalmology, DR screening rates remain low; 35% of individuals with diabetes are unscreened for DR. New strategies are required to identify, engage and provide ongoing monitoring to those requiring DR screening.
