Your job is to coordinate everybody who is involved with this project in your community: teachers, principals, parents, children, screeners, and optometrists.

The Hospital for Sick Children requires you to read and sign this form, and to read this page as well. Both of those documents refer to a "note to file" template. If you need one, you will find it here and above under "essential forms."
Health Canada requires you to complete this training module teaching good clinical practice. We shall pay you for four hours' work once you do.
