The iHV is delighted to share new Good Practice Points on Retinoblastoma, providing up-to-date evidence and references:
Good Practice Points – Signs and Symptoms of Retinoblastoma and Knowing What to Look for
(available to iHV members only)
Authored by Petra Maxwell, Childhood Eye Cancer Trust, these Good Practive Points provide information on the signs and symptoms of Retinoblastoma and what to look for.
Retinoblastoma (Rb) is a rare cancer of the eye which presents in babies and young children mainly up to the age of five, the majority of whom will have at least one eye removed to save their lives.
As health visitors play such an important role in the early stages of a child’s life, it is crucial that you are aware of the signs and symptoms of Retinoblastoma (Rb). Your actions can help to ensure a swift referral pathway for suspected cases.
Please note that GPPs are available to iHV members only.
