This is a great program I think all assistants in the medical field should be required to take. We can avoid so many wounds from happening if assistants knew how to properly check the feet.

The Role of the Licensed Assistant in Foot Care

Health care often assigns Assistants with first contact with patients during daily care. They become their patients’ first line of defense. They are first to see advancing infections or conditions, so foot care training is important for this care provider in many workplace settings:

Foot Care of the Elderly

Many of the elderly suffer from chronic conditions and illnesses. These conditions require special care of the patient’s feet to prevent infections and to prevent or interrupt the track toward amputation and death. The MA trained through this program can provide this preventive care.

Hospital Stay Foot Care

Ulcers on the feet and legs of med-surg patients can progress from no symptoms to needing acute wound care in as little as 48 hours. These patients benefit from training in the prevention and care of ulcers on the feet and legs.

Long Term Care Facility Foot Care

MAs, CNAs and others in this setting must know foot care protocols.  Performance of daily inspection and care of these patients to prevent progression to the need for acute care. Good foot care can reduce suffering and potential morbidity of these patients.

Certification as a Certified Foot Care Specialist (CFCS®)

The American Foot Care Nurses Association accepts the 25 hours of Contact Hours granted in completing all 10 Modules of this course as qualification to sit their exam.  Please go to the AFCNA website to read about their certification program.

Podiatry Offices and Diabetic Foot Care Clinics

Only 17,000 podiatrists provide foot care to the burgeoning population of diabetics and elderly in the US. Foot care-trained Assistants can lighten the load for podiatrists and physicians.  Assisting in med-surg care and increasing patient treatment numbers in the offices/clinics benefits everyone.

Great Experience!

I have taken many online courses and I can honestly say that I know there was a lot of time and effort put into creating this course. The information is invaluable and I have recommended this course to others! I highly recommend anyone wanting to learn more about foot care assisting or beginning their career to take this course.

Thank you so much, Kristian, for your evaluation. It really is gratifying when our students appreciate the care put into the courses. We wish you the very best in your work!

This is a great program I think all assistants in the medical field should be required to take. We can avoid so many wounds from happening if assistants knew how to properly check the feet.

I have worked with feet for 2 years now and I learned so much that I had never known before. All the information I learned will be used on a daily basis, especially during my clinic days to eliminate any and all foot problems that I can.

Shaylin, you are so right on point--prevention is where the focus needs to be!
