  • Description

    Acute sport-related injuries of the ankle and foot are common occurrences in a primary care setting. Accurate and early diagnosis along with appropriate management is crucial for optimal patient outcomes. Although musculoskeletal injuries are rarely life threatening, they could result in permanent disability – disability that can be minimized with timely care and appropriate referral. Foot problems frequently prompt a visit to a primary health care provider. The prevalence of foot conditions increases with age, often limiting mobility. Management aims to help relieve pain, prevent further complications, return to baseline physical function, enhance cosmetic appearance and promote quality of life. Preventive foot care education is pivotal and timely referral to a foot care professional may be required, especially for those with systemic or underlying chronic conditions.

    Learning Objectives
    • This module will enable clinicians to assess and diagnose acute, sport-related injuries in the ankle and foot, including potentially serious injuries that may be missed; and use evidence-based strategies to manage acute injuries to these structures in a primary care setting.
    • The Common Non-Traumatic Foot Problems in Adults module will enable clinicians to effectively assess and diagnose common foot conditions and incorporate comprehensive screening for those with diabetes; recommend evidence-based (or best-practice) treatment strategies that include those related to pain, mechanical deformity, skin and nail conditions; and understand the current role and scope of practice for different foot care professionals in Canada.
