Global Clubfoot Initiative Launch New Webinar Series

The Global Clubfoot Initiative (GCI) is a consortium of individuals and organisations with technical and organisational expertise in clubfoot management, using the Ponseti method and experience in establishing national clubfoot programmes in low and middle income countries. As part of their mission they provide resources and make training available to those working with people with clubfoot.

Physiopedia has worked with the GCI before in the hugely successful Managing Children with Clubfoot which was published in 2017. The course is still available now and thanks to the GCI we have some incredible content which will transform your practice.

In keeping with their aim to provide resource for the clubfoot community the GCI are launching a new webinar series with the first being on Measuring outcomes and delivering quality in clubfoot treatment. This will take place on 3 July, 14.00 – 15.30 (GMT +01). To get the link to take part you will have to sign up but don’t worry it is completely free. There is no cost involved.

Why this topic?

There is variation in how the result of clubfoot management is measured and reported globally. This webinar will present approaches to measure the outcomes of treatment including longer term outcome and the experience of the patient and family and their level of satisfaction with the treatment.  Participants will also hear from national clubfoot programmes in a number of different countries on how they work to improve quality in their clubfoot treatment, to support the delivery of the best outcomes possible.
