What is the EROS project about? Diabetic Eye Screening (DES) is important for young adults to prevent avoidable sight loss, e.g., diabetic retinopathy. This group are the least likely to attend promptly for first screening after diagnosis and for ongoing annual DES. The aim of the EROS Project is to identify barriers and enablers of attendance at DES appointments that will inform interventions to increase attendance in young adults with diabetes.
What are the EROS Knowledge Exchange Events designed to achieve? To reduce our current long-list of possible interventions to a shortlist of interventions that are considered, by event participants, to be the most feasible and most likely to remove barriers to attendance or enhance enablers of attendance at DES appointments for young adults with diabetes.
Event 1 (30th June 2021)
For stakeholders to reflect on and discuss a list of possible interventions that might improve the uptake of DES in young adults with diabetes. To complete an online poll to prioritise the interventions and discuss the results.
Event 2 (15th July 2021)
For stakeholders to discuss the prioritized behavioural interventions in more detail, sharing knowledge about how these could be put into policy and practice.
* Stakeholders are people from; DES services, related policy and Public Health organisations, young adults that use screening services and health care professionals that provide DES.
