COVID-19: A Podiatry Perspective

  • This joint webinar with the College of Podiatry will address many of the issues facing the practice of podiatry during this crisis. An international group of podiatrists have been gathered together to offer their perspective on issues facing podiatry at this time: all of whom are Fellows of the College. These podiatrists are either delivering front-line care to COVID-19 patients and/or collecting data that will inform future podiatric practice. 

    The webinar will draw on papers already published and indeed available on the College web page. The detail of the presentations will focus on what’s currently being delivered to patients who require emergency foot care; issues around upskilling podiatrists to work in an ICU department; current thinking and observations on skin lesions in patients with COVID-19 and instruction on the use of steroid injections in patients with this condition and what might be the alternative treatments available. There will follow a Q&A session which will allow ample time to discuss and clarify any questions that may arise from the presentations.

    This webinar is free to members of the College of Podiatry. If you are member of the College of Podiatry please register here

    Learning Outcomes:

    • Understand the roles played by podiatrists across different locations and the potential roles for podiatrists in managing critically ill patients in the future.
    • Demonstrate a basic knowledge of the pharmacological structure of steroid injections and fully understand why these are contradictory in patients with a COVID-19 diagnosis. Be aware of what alternative treatments are available and how challenging these might be for the profession.
    • Have an appreciation of the possible effects of COVID-19 on the feet particularly in terms of dermatological manifestations.

    Suitable for:

    • Podiatric Students
