|Abstract||This is the summary benchmark of the Preferred Practice Pattern (PPP) for Conjunctivitis. Both are produced by the American Academy of Ophthalmology. Summary Benchmarks contain a condensed version of the most relevant evidence-based recommendations of PPPs and were published in October 2003. |
The first page outlines the three principles on which PPPs have been written and how recommendations have been rated by a panel according to importance to the care process and strength of evidence. The second page summarises the key elements for initial examination history, initial physical exam, diagnostic tests, care management, follow up evaluation and patient education.
