Minor Procedures on Feet and Nails - 2 CE Credits

While some of my viewers don't have a scope of practice to perform some of these foot care procedures, this course is intended to educate everyone on some of there common procedures that are performed in general podiatry. For each of the procedures covered we'll discuss diagnosis of the condition, common pitfalls, and more. By the end of this course, all of those who practice foot health care will have a better understanding of common procedures and how they can benefit patients who present with certain conditions.
