Description of registry

The aim of the National Quality Registry for Rehabilitation for Visual Impairment (SKRS) is to increase knowledge about rehabilitation measures and their results in order to achieve equitable visual rehabilitation in Sweden. SKRS also aims to develop data on process and outcomes based on relevant evidence-based interventions and to provide data for research, operational development, and clinical improvements.

The patients’ care chain consists of referral assessment, first consultation with charting and preparation of rehabilitation plan, next appointment (measures in the form of investigation, testing and training of compensatory techniques and aids, supportive and motivational consultations, crisis support and support for family members) and follow-up. A lot of resources are invested in training in the use of optical devices or other aids.

Pilot registration began in 2014 at four units in Halland, Gotland, Blekinge and Region Västra Götaland.

Population

SKRS’s initial target group is persons over 20 years of age. The patients who are referred to low-vision centres have been medically investigated and treated by ophthalmologists at eye clinics.

Note: Variable lists are updated on a regular basis and should therefore be seen as preliminary. For the latest version, please contact the registry.
