The FENETRE study Telemedicine and AI decision support in the community for stable AMD

The FENETRE study is a multi-site prospective research project looking at the potential for monitoring patients with stable AMD in the community by trained optometrists. This would alleviate pressures on hospital-based eye clinics and lead to a better experience of care for our patients closer to home.
In this large, multi-site prospective study funded by the NIHR, we will look at how care for patients with stable AMD can be devolved to community optometry practices. We will explore the role of digital technologies and artificial intelligence decision support to facilitate the process of monitoring patients with stable AMD closer to home, reducing the pressures on busy hospital-based eye clinics.
