Description

The I see for culture eye health education resources were developed by the Brien Holden Vision Institute, Public Health Division (formerly ICEE, International Centre for Eyecare Education), through funding from the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing. Designed specifically for use with adults in rural and remote Indigenous health contexts, they are primarily image-based. The complete kits contain the following components:

The flipcharts image-based content and narrative style wording allow health workers to better explain and educate their patients about eye and vision disorders. Although an ideal size for one-on-one use, they could also be used with a small group of patients. Further information on how to use the flipcharts is contained in the information booklet.

There are two flipcharts:

Two different posters have been designed to be displayed in community health centres, to promote the importance of everyone having a regular eye exam. Mark Ella, first Indigenous captain of the Wallabies rugby union team, is the Ambassador for the I See for Culture campaign and Mark's photo is on the eye health awareness posters:

With funding from the Department of Health and Ageing, the Brien Holden Vision Institute has distributed these kits at no cost to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health organisations, clinics, and registered training organisations.
