• Identify what is meant by the term ‘low vision’ or ‘visual impairment’ and
discuss how these definitions or models apply to the patient in the associated

MACULAR DEGENERATION)
• Critically reflect upon how these terms or models are underpinned by, or
contrast, psycho-social models and frameworks relating to impairment and the
lived experience of a person.
• Using an appropriate evidence base, discuss the pathophysiology presenting in
the associated patient, and evaluate its impact on the patient’s visual function.
• Evaluate what the evidence base suggests about the long-term prognosis for
the patient.
• Utilising the evidence identified, link the patient’s reported issues with their
daily lived experience, to the pathophysiology and its impact on visual function.

explaining the theory of the cycle you have used.

own practice and that of others, using multiple frames of
reference. Consider actions and alternative future actions
Appendices must include a copy of the associated case record, or the submission will
be marked as incomplete. Students may also include full details of their completed
reflective cycles, and /or a full action plan following their reflection. N.B., with the
exception of the case record, no marks are awarded to content within the appendices:
elements are included to support the main body of the piece.
References are required for all statements. Forming a true academic discussion, with
the most contemporary, reliable and credible, relevant sources, is the key to
achieving distinction grades. If a source discusses, let us says, an approach to patientcentred care, are there other
sources that support their thinking/research? Or, are
there other researchers that disagree? That is an academic discussion.
