PODIATRAIN Progress Meeting

Share

Yesterday, July 11 took place the progress meeting 1 of the European Project Open Online course in new technologies for diagnosis and treatment of foot pathologies (PODIATRAIN).

PODIATRAIN project arises to generate a learning offer addressed to podiatrists and foot health professionals to complement the learning outcomes of current formal high educational programmes with training in new technologies for diagnoses and treatment of patients. The diversity in formal educational programmes across countries leads to a consequent heterogeneity of podiatry professionals, but the need of gaining knowledge in new technologies for patient assessment and diagnosis is a common issue throughout Europe.

PODIATRAIN will offer these professionals a number of advantages over widely extended traditional methods providing a route to transform foot health care from an artisan craft into a modern clinical speciality. The project results will contribute to improve the competences of these professionals, widening their labour opportunities. PODIATRAIN will be available in two European languages (English and Spanish).

This transnational action will allow joining and integrating the specific knowledge and expertise of the participating organisations. The resulting course will subsequently benefit patients.

The final structure of the course will be the following:

MODULE 1: BIOMECHANICS OF PATHOLOGIC FOOT AND ANKLE PROBLEMS

Session 1: Introduction to Podiatric biomechanics

Session 2: Paradigms and Theories

Session 3: Application paradigms: strengths and weaknesses

MODULE 2: TECHNOLOGIES FOR THE BIOMECHANICAL ASSESSMENT OF THE PATIENTS

Session 1: Technologies for the biomechanical assessment of the patient. Part I

Session 2: Technologies for the biomechanical assessment of the patient. Part II

Session 3: CAD/CAM systems and 3D printing

MODULE 3: CASES STUDIES

This project is Funded by European Commission ERASMUS+ Call 2016 KA2 – Cooperation and Innovation for Good Practices.
