Community Engagement

RANZCO seeks to inform the community of our activities and invites community members to contribute, through consultation or involvement, to developing proposals or position statements, raising awareness, advising on or participate in events, advocating on a particular issue and getting involved in projects.

In Australia and New Zealand, our advocacy has a strong focus on strengthening the health system to improve eye health service provision and encouraging government support for resources to enable effective, safe and quality interventions leading to best patient outcomes.

RANZCO, as the leader in eye care, works collaboratively with others to ensure improved referral pathways, keeping up to date with latest research and new technology developments to ensure best possible care for patients by our Fellows and the teams in which they work.

Education is a key aspect of our work and ranges from public health messaging to training ophthalmologists locally and abroad, involving community members in these and various other activities.

First Nations Helpline

RANZCO’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a confidential counselling service available to RANZCO Fellows, associates, staff and their immediate family members. They have a specific First Nations Helpline with counsellors who provide support and are trained in the issues that face many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians. Learn more about this here or by calling 1300 287 432.
