Topic: The Role of Allied Health Workers in Clubfoot Treatment
At the time Dr Ponseti was developing his method, clubfoot was mostly treated by orthopaedic surgeons. With the introduction of a less invasive treatment for congenital clubfoot, the role of allied health professionals became a vitally important addition to clubfoot services. This is especially relevant for countries with resource constraints where there may be a shortage of doctors. It can also reduce treatment costs for government programmes globally. There are already many allied health professionals practising Ponseti, and this webinar aims to discuss their role.
This is the second in a series of three webinars produced by our partner Steps Clubfoot Africa and sponsored by Steps Worldwide.
WEBINAR SERIES OVERVIEW
The Ponseti Method which has become best practice in the past 20 years is a specific protocol developed by Dr Ignaçio Ponseti in the mid 20th century. As the Ponseti Method grew in popularity it became apparent that although it is very well adapted for use in countries with restricted resource settings, there are challenges that still need to be resolved.
This webinar series for health professionals provides an opportunity to discuss the latest studies and knowledge.
