The Foot Health Assessment Program is a nationally accredited program and is fully funded by the federal Department of Health under the Chronic Disease Project.
The Foot Health Assessment Program is designed to provide skills and knowledge for a range of health professionals and others working within Indigenous Health to provide detailed information and advice in relation to foot health management.
On the successful completion of the program, participants should have the ability to safely perform a basic foot care assessment, determine foot care requirements and use basic equipment and a range of topical medications where the services of a professional podiatrist are not required.
The program is evidence based and the techniques taught are designed to promote the best practice outcomes for patient care.
This program has been designed to provide the student with the opportunity to gain or consolidate knowledge and skills in basic foot care assessment management and referral.
