ALSO IN THE ISSUE

LEGAL

The O.D. should go over the documented informed consent verbally with the patient, frequently stopping to ask the patient whether he fully understands and has any related questions, while a witness, such as a technician, is present to hear the conversation and see the patient sign the document. (Acquire Informed Consent, p.48)

NUTRITION

Should diet alone not be enough, O.D.s should consider supplementing with omega-3 fatty acids or a supplement that contains omega-3 fatty acids and GLA (an omega-6 fatty acid), as research clearly shows they have an important role in the management of this chronic condition. (Runnin’ Down a DREAM, p.50)
