Professional practice for podiatric practitioners is not a new phenomenon; it has dominated the focus of educational discussion and debate on how best the scope and parameters of podiatric medicine can be developed for the majority of two decades. Much has focused on how traditional academic theoretical perspectives on professionalism can be translated into applied clinical practice at the front line of patient assessment, diagnosis and management. Written by a selection of dedicated practitioners and educators from the field of healthcare generally and podiatric medicine specifically, the overall aims of this book are to:
• raise an awareness of professional practice for podiatric practitioners through an engagement with the core clinical, intellectual and analytical skills required for healthcare generally and podiatric practice specifically;
• provide a resource for members of the podiatric practitioner community, which addresses the fundamental contributory factors of professional practice in key areas such as professional identity, clinical professional practice, management and leadership alongside education and continuing professional development;
• develop an approach which enhances the healthcare practitioner’s ability to engage with and build capacity between professions in an inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary approach to high quality healthcare provision.
