NOVEL Patient Portal Meeting by phone:
Discuss NOVEL development of the patient education portal. Some ideas are:
1. We identified a set of topics as potential new additions to the Patient Brochure list. They are:
Optic Nerve Sheath Meningioma - Madhu Agarwal
Photophobia - Kathleen Digre
Vertigo - David Newman-Toker
Nystagmus - Eric Eggenberger or ??
Eyelid Myochiamia - ??
There is a possibility that more topic can be identified through the AAO POC (Practicing Ophthalmologists Curriculum) committee. Dr. Agarwal is on that committee and will ask Roger about that list.
2. International translations: Dr. Mejico has the translations in French, German, Spanish and Hebrew. He has the final task of adding the pictures, then will send them to Preston and Nancy for adding to the NANOS and NOVEL Web sites.
3. Develop appropriate reading level brochures for health literacy compliance - Nancy will obtain the guide prepared by Jackie Smith at the U of U and get it into a Web format. We will add it to the NOVEL collections, and send it to this team for review.
4. Nancy will work on developing a brief survey of users for feedback, and will get a suggestion box added to the Patient Portal page in NOVEL.
5. Dr. Mejico will seek out the authors of the existing brochures and ask if they would like to be credited.
6. Nancy will review the existing brochures and identify the common headers. She will send the list to this group for review. The agreed upon headers can then serve as a template for brochure developers.
