We are not trying to replace Podiatrists and other Physicians. We are trying to be their clinical associates. We exam the feet that others overlook. That allows us to make referrals for the more advanced care that the Physicians can provide. And by performing the "routine care" on senior and high risk feet, we not only recognize and refer problems, we can help keep the feet healthier and prevent problems.
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.
