Useful websites for Podiatrists
Perhaps the best aspect of being a Podiatrist is having a skill that can be of immediate and direct benefit to others. Obviously you need most of your time to earn your living but if you want to get out there and do something a bit different you'll find plenty of reward from time spent volunteering. Here are a few organisations that could get good value from your time.
Education and Information
Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists,
only for members of the SCP there are numerous links to educational
/ CPD content and a very important message forum where it is possible
and advised to make your comments about UK podiatry and the running
of the SCP.
Diabetic Foot, a
good refresher on caring for the diabetic foot and a fantastic opportunity
to download and print out foot care advice in 30 languages, including
Arabic, Chinese, Swahili and Welsh to name a few. So if your Bangladeshi
or Tagalog isn't quite cutting it with some of your patients make
sure you pay a visit!
Arena, a global
podiatry forum with areas for UK specific topics. Very user-friendly,
moderated and attended. Recommended.
Textbook of Orthopaedics.
Online textbook in an easily searched format. A very useful source
of lower limb anatomy and pathology reference.
If you are one, are looking for one or are a Podiatrist with an interest
in orthotic manufacture and technology; here's a new site for you
If you have

for inclusion, links to commercial sites incur a small fee if reciprocal
links are not available
