Eye care delivery models to improve access to eye care for Indigenous peoples in high-income countries: a scoping review
We conducted a scoping review to identify and summarise service delivery models designed to improve access to eye care for Indigenous peoples in high-income countries. The geographical and clinical scope of models identified is narrow, with most studies focused on Australia and services for diabetic retinopathy. Fewer than one-third of studies reported involving Indigenous communities when designing the service; almost two-thirds reflected on whether the model improved access, but none undertook rigorous evaluation or quantitative assessment. More and better engagement with Indigenous communities is required to design and implement accessible eye care services.
