More screenings, faster

In 2015, with help from Fondation J.-Louis Lévesque and Jean Turmel, the HMR Foundation supported the creation of a program to train clinical nurses to screen for diabetic retinopathy.

The program, developed by HMR retinologist and researcher Dr. Marie-Carole Boucher, provides diabetic patients with easier access to high-quality screening for the early signs of diabetic retinopathy. This makes it easier to give affected patients the treatment and care they require.

Thanks to improved training and state-of-the-art equipment, nurses carry out an initial reading of triage results, identify cases that indicate a pathology, and work closely with retinologists to increase the efficiency of the screening process.

This bold and innovative initiative has had nothing but a positive impact on patient care and has helped streamline resource management to better meet the needs of the population, increase the number of patients in care and prevent many cases of blindness.
