RACGP Registrar Series - Foot Health

Enrol

Improve your skills in assessing, diagnosing and managing foot problems. Foot health has the potential to effect overall health, especially when it affects mobility. The ability of GPs to accurately diagnose and manage common foot problems, acute sport injuries, overuse mid-foot presentations and the assessment and monitoring of diabetic related conditions is essential.

This workshop has been designed to reduce the risk of foot complications and improve patient outcomes, particularly in patients with peripheral neuropathy. Presented by Mr Lane Sanderson, Principal Podiatrist Subiaco Foot Clinic, this workshop will improve your confidence in the management of plantar fasciitis, Morton’s neuroma, wedge resections and the diabetic foot. Regenerative healing therapies including PRP and shockwave therapy will also be discussed.

Learning outcomes include:

  1. Describe the conservative treatment options, as well as surgical treatment options in the management of ingrown toenails.
  2. Develop a comprehensive care plan to regularly assess patients at risk of developing high risk foot complications.
  3. Improve your ability to diagnose and treat a range of common podiatry presentations including plantar fasciitis and Morton’s neuroma.
  4. Describe the application of Regenerative Healing Therapies, and how to determine appropriateness in a clinical setting.

Light refreshments will be provided. Cost is $30 for members and $40 for non-members. For more information and to register, please click here.
