We have some great news. ProCert FSBPT has just awarded 10CCUs to the the managing children with clubfoot course.
If you took part in the course don’t worry. Go back into PP+ and download a new version of the course completion certificate. If you haven’t complete the course yet there is still time. Full PP+ members can still complete the course and get these CCUs).
For the third year in succession Physiopedia and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) working together to create this course. This time around the Global Clubfoot Initiative (GCI) helped to create the best resource possible. This course really did build on the momentum from the cerebral palsy MOOC from 2016.
We have to thanks Prem Saggurthi, a physiotherapist who works as a rehabilitation manager for the ICRC, who helped us create the course. He’s (and the ICRC) are amazing, just watch this video to find out about them and the course.
As Prem passionately explains in this interview, clubfoot is entirely treatable and we need to do more to get that message across to those who haven’t heard. Why not help out and get some CCU’s at the same time?

Other Course Accredited with Procert
Over 8 weeks in September and October 2016 Physiopedia, in collaboration with the International Committee of the Red Cross, delivered it’s fifth Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on the topic of Cerebral Palsy (CP). 14,010 participants formally registered for the Managing Children with Cerebral Palsy course, this represented 179 countries and 84% were physiotherapists.
This course changed the entire approach towards CP, not only for me but with the application in clinical setting, also for my colleagues. I got to learn not about the treatment through material but with videos and practical approaches in different countries. Especially the discussion forum really helped where different physiotherapists from all around the world shared their experiences.
A Whopping 2/3’s of the required number of CCUs can be gained by taking part in the CP course when it suits you, in your own time.
But there’s more! We have many more courses which can give you all the CPD points you need. Why don’t you take a look?
