Foot Health Myths, Facts & Fables

Foot Health Myths, Facts & Fables

Myths, Facts & Fables on Foot Health in fact was started back in 2017, but I wanted to publish something that would offer a little amusement, plenty of facts and dispel myths and fables. Given the wealth of rubbish and misleading information now available, it seemed about right that I would offer my own readers something they could trust.

Podiatry Book Review

Podiatry Book Review

Such is the gritty discourse that punctuates much of this deeply interesting dissection of the past, present and future of the Allied Health Professions. The book is co-written by Alan Borthwick, for so long the profession’s historian and natural successor to Colin Dagnall. Alan has tremendous oversight of Podiatry’s development in the last half of the 20th and early 21st century much of it gleaned from his ‘at the coal face’ involvement in such huge developments as independent prescribing and degree courses for podiatry. Alan’s co-author, Susan Nancarrow, is also a podiatrist by background, a former senior academic (Professor and Deputy Vice Chancellor at Southern Cross University), as well as a leading health services researcher. She is now, once again, based in Australia having spent 10 years working in Sheffield universities.

We spend our life dealing with skin and so knowledge of the cellular activity is important.

Book review Victorian Surgery

Book review Victorian Surgery

This book review is brought to you by Ian Turbutt, a past senior member of the podiatry profession and former consultant podiatric surgeon.   When Ian wrote and told me I should read this book, I had not realised how engaging it would be. Simply to remind us of the progress that we have made and how few infections arise from surgical intervention, given the complexity of our work today is a salutary reminder of the difference in training between the 19th to 21st centuries.

Selling Foot Health as Podiatry

Selling Foot Health as Podiatry

I recommend this book to all new podiatry practitioners and to those looking to improve their practice marketing. The author takes you through the various stages of learning how to brand your practice and fight your way to success. If I had seen this book at the start of my career I would have avoided mistakes and been well placed to succeed in the 21st century practice world.
