Professional Development Foot Care Conference

Posted by Laura Bolton RPN on March 31, 2017 at 10:10 AM

On Saturday March 25, I attended the first annual Professional Development Foot Care Conference in London, Ontario. This conference was a one day conference held at the Best Western Lamplighter. To say there is much to learn about foot care is an understatment. This conference included topics on diabetic foot care, infection control, nail bracing and reconstruction, responsive behaviours, building a business and biomechanics.

All in all, the speakers that presented were exellent. However there were 3 that really stood out for me and they happenened to be the last three speakers of the day - Dr Peter DeShane, Lisa Joworski and Al Ladhani D.Ch.

Lisa, who is a Therapeutic Recreation Specialist, spoke about dementia and responsive behaviours. What i picked up from Lisa is to care for someone who has dementia, regardless of what stage they are at in the disease process, is to learn who the individial is behind the disease - what are their likes, their dislikes, what they did for a living, if they hae children or grandchildren, etc. When you get to know who the individual is behind the disease, it is easier to care for them as it is easier to recognize their triggers and know when something is bothering them - can come across as a responsive behaviour. When someone is experiencing a responsive behaviour, having "tricks" to help calm/reassure the individual can help the situation but what may have worked one time, may not work the next. So it is important to try different things.

Dr DeShane, a chiropractor, spoke about building your practice. In his speech, he emphasized when building any business, it needs to be a reflection of who you are - your values, beliefs. he explained to have a successful business, you first need to learn who you are. Once you learn who you are and begin living your life according to your values and beliefs, your business will begin to represent that and will be successful. 

Al, owner of Step by Step Foot Care, gave us a brief introduction of biomechanics (how your body moves). I honestly believe he could have talked all day long about biomechanics. The amount of knowledge he has is incredible. The one thing he stressed throughout his presentation is to really understand biomechanics, you need to have a thorough understanding of human anatomy and physiology. When you have a good understanding of anatomy and physiology, it is easier to understand biomechanics.
