New Foot and Ankle Course!

New Foot and Ankle Course!

To follow up from the excellent Global Health course in January we have the Foot and Ankle course in March.

The first section of the foot and ankle course will be published on Monday the 6th of March and will provide you with an introduction that will enable you to assess and treat foot and ankle conditions based on up to date evidence and practice, from the diabetic foot to the high level sporting athlete.

The foot and ankle is a complex structure which presents in a wide variety of clinical settings. Best practice requires skills in assessment, treatment and rehabilitation across acute and chronic conditions. The foot and ankle is a large topic, that in itself can be studies as a full degree, as our colleagues; podiatrists do, therefore this course is by no means exhaustive. Therefore this learn topic will be an introduction and allow you to create a foundation for you to build upon.

The course will be covered over 4 weeks:

  1. Weeks 1 – Structure and function of the foot and ankle
  2. Week 2 – Medial and lateral aspects of the ankle
  3. Week 3 – Conditions of the anterior, posterior and plantar aspects
  4. Week 4 – Other common conditions and orthotics

Expect to spend 4-6 hours per week on this learn topic but with the flexibility to suit you.

At the end of the course you should be able to analyse issues involving the foot and ankle using functional anatomy and biomechanics. You will then be able to clinically reason different treatments and rehabilitation options based on the latest evidence.

To gain acces to this course you will have to be a member of Physiopedia Plus.
