The course provides health professionals with the opportunity to enhance your knowledge and skills in this area in relation to relevant contemporary issues and developments. This will enable you to extend and enhance the depth and breadth of your clinical practice and will equip you with the competencies to work at a higher level of practice. Modules include: - Research Methods 1 - Introduction to Forensic Podiatry - Advanced Studies for Forensic Podiatry Practice The course delivery is predominantly distance learning with three one week blocks in September, February and April, thus minimising any disruption to clinics for practitioners involved in full-time clinical practice.
