"Routine Foot Care"
*Podiatrists and other Physicians are traditionally the first line providers of this care. But changes in the Health Care Industry have lead to access and reimbursement issues for many who need care. This can necessitate that services such as "Routine Foot Care" be provided by other qualified providers.
Nurses, PAs and other clinical staff are reaching out to obtain the education and training needed to fill the gap and provide this important care to Seniors and anyone in need.
*Our organization has been formed in an attempt to provide a forum for nurses and other providers of routine foot care. This will allow communication, cooperative learning, and an increase in understanding of best practice protocols and procedures. It will help us provide the most professional and appropriate care and truly become partners with other foot care professionals.

Featured AFCNA International Branch
We are so proud of our first International Branch!! For almost 30 years CFCS Arinda Bothe has provided much needed footcare for communities near Johannesburg, South Africa. She contacted AFCNA several years ago and shared the challenges she was facing in gaining professional recognition for her work. This sounds familiar to Foot Care Nurses here in the US!!! We continue to work hard to find acceptance in the healthcare community here. But our good work and the power in numbers helping us achieve that goal.
