Unique systems at Minamiaoyama Eye Clinic for maintaining quality of care and safety for patients
It is our belief that refractive surgery is a supplementary method that aims to improve the quality of life via correction of nearsightedness, astigmatism, and farsightedness. Eyes are sensory organs. Through the faculty of sight, they play the role of one of the most important organs that enable us to receive external stimuli. Safety in the treatment of our eyes should assume utmost importance. At the Minamiaoyama Eye Clinic, we have established 7 unique systems for maintaining the quality of care and safety levels in our medical treatment.
- Doctors' meeting
Once every 2 months, all the physicians employed at Minamiaoyama Eye Clinic and the team leaders gather for a doctors’ meeting, actively exchanging and deliberating on various cases and new technology.
- The Practice Manual and the Training Manual
We have now created practice and training manuals based on our past experiences. We update these manuals regularly and aim to consistently administer a high quality of treatment.
- The Ethics Committee
Before incorporating new technologies, they are thoroughly considered by the ethics committee from the viewpoints of safety and effectiveness.
- The Crisis Management Manual
We investigate the precise causes of incidents that occur at Minamiaoyama Eye Clinic and establish countermeasures and responses to prevent their recurrence.
- Research Meetings
The research groups conduct regularly meetings to discuss research plans and their execution, conference presentation plans, and progress on their theses.
- Universal Study Workshop
All members of the staff along with the doctors attend an annual workshop meeting as an open and enjoyable forum, gaining more knowledge by inviting guest lecturers and presenting research papers.
- Medical Conference Presentations
We regard the data of each case as invaluable and record them in a database. This information is actively reported at various medical forums. We consider it our duty to contribute to the progress and improvement of refractive surgery both in Japan and worldwide.
