Routine Foot Care Visit Essentials - 2.0CE

As a nurse specializing in foot care, a significant portion of your patients will fall into a "high risk" category, in terms of foot care. Elderly patients, particularly those with venous disease, arterial disease and neuropathy will require special attention, and it's important that you're able to identify a high-risk foot within minutes of making your initial visual assessment.

In this video, we'll talk about very specific strategies you'll be able to incorporate into your exam in order to pinpoint small problem areas that carry the potential to evolve into more significant complications. By correctly identifying foot care issues and determining whether they're within your own scope of practice or require a referral, you'll be able to make big differences in the lives of your patients.

In this video, we'll discuss the difference between routine and advanced foot care, identify the goals of routine foot care and provide examples of scenarious that are routine vs. not routine, when it may not be immediately obvious. Throughout the course of the video, Dr. Julia will provide information for pre-treatment exams and charting, including in-depth instructions for foot and toe inspection to identify neuropathic injuries such as lesions from ill-fitting shoes.

Foot and nail care for older adults and those with chronic illnesses carries additional risks and requires conservative treatment on your part. Patients insufficient blood flow to the extremities are less likely to heal from cuts and do not need the same level of debridement. Here, we'll discuss what to look for to determine whether a person is at higher risk for developing problems, and outline the steps and goals for conservative foot care. We'll provide relevant information about how to approach foot care when treating people who have peripheral arterial or venous disease, and outline the objective (visual) signs of these diseases. Together, we will work through various examples Dr. Julia herself has encountered in her clinic, to determine whether routine or conservative foot care will be the more appropriate choice in each case.


In our hands-on classes, we provide real life practice on patients requiring both routine and conservative foot and nail care.
