• How to inject

    In these videos, IVEG members describe the IVEG-recommended intravitreal injection method, from room set-up to patient follow-up. This method is based on the healthcare failure modes and effects analysis (HFMEA) review conducted by IVEG (read the publication).


    HFMEA is a systematic risk mitigation assessment that aims to advance clinical practice by focusing improvements on the most hazardous steps in a procedure. The HFMEA scores generated by IVEG are presented alongside each video to show their evaluation of the associated risks. You can perform your own risk assessment with our risk reduction toolkit. We hope you enjoy these videos which can be watched in sequence or independently. Please feel free to share them with your colleagues using the links provided.
