East Coast Podiatry was delighted to have Dr. Ian Mathieson and Joanne Fawcett from the Cardiff Metropolitan University join us at this week’s CPD workshop.
This session was focused on keeping the team abreast of new developments in the field, particularly in the area of assessments and diagnostics. Dr. Mathieson emphasised the importance of updating clinical practice to reflect new research, facilitating a discussion on patient treatment using podiatric case studies and current developments in the field.
Joanne Fawcett focused on the effects of renal disease on the lower limbs. This session was particularly welcome as the disease is a concern in Singapore due to the growing pandemic of diabetes. Joanne covered a number of issues including the relationship between diabetes and renal diseases, and how podiatrists play a role in helping chronic renal disease patients maintain quality of life.
Our podiatrists, Afnan Al Maskari (leftmost) and Ari Tria Dzulkifle were delighted to meet the teaching staff from their alma mater.
We are delighted that Dr. Mathieson and Ms. Fawcett were able to visit us for this informative session and look forward to hosting them again on their next visit to Singapore.
Dr. Ian Mathieson is the Director of Teaching and the Deputy Dean of the School of Sport and Health Sciences at the Cardiff Metropolitan University. His clinical focus lies in the areas of biomechanics and research skills.
Ms. Joanne Fawcett is the Programme Director of Podiatry at the Cardiff Metropolitan University and has a special interest in diabetes and endocrinology.
