Robert Lindfield's Research
My main research interest is quality of eye care in low and middle income countries. I have just completed a study to assess whether providing clinical teams with information about the quality of their service leads to quality improvement.
Other research focuses on whether ocular morbidity can be managed effectively in primary care in low income countries. This has involved a series of studies including population-based surveys and health service assessments in Kenya, Nigeria and Cameroon in collaboration with Sightsavers and the University of Nairobi.
I am currently working with Mbarara University of Science and Technology (MUST) on a study of whether quality of cataract surgery in two hospitals in Uganda can be improved using mentorship.
