I am not a podiatrist but a Foot Health Practitioner (FHP).

The Alliance mentioned by some on here, refers to one of the regulatory bodies for FHPs and Podiatrists.

The Alliance of Private Sector Practitioners.

The Alliance of Private Sector Practitioners is not a regulatory body. It is a professional body for the representation of the interests of its private sector podiatrist and foot health practitioner members. It is now probably second in size only to the Society of C&P and is the leading body for FHPs.

Within the Alliance, all practitioners are members - because all are in practice and all have the same needs of practice insurance (£5m), practice support and cpd. All Alliance cpd events are open to all, and all are welcome at our Open Clinical Forums (branch events) or Annual Convention.

All Alliance cpd is at the right level for practice - speakers at the recent Convention included Judith Barbero-Brown, Teaching Fellow at the University of Durham, Dr Ian Mathieson, Senior Lecturer at the University of Cardiff, and Chris Ramsden, Internationally-recognised expert in Ergonomics and advisor to the NHS on podiatry issues. All have agreed to return to deliver further presentations....

The link to the Alliance website is properly www.thealliancepsp.com, not as stated earlier in the thread (my apologies for the typo). I am pleased to be able to make this correction.

I am certain that Catfoot is perfectly well intentioned, but has not yet learned that a little more discretion would temper the zeal and go a long way in her attempts at communication. We are not all brought up in the street or the alley.

I leave CF with a thought for the day.... 'you can grow things with bu££$h*t, but water them with cat pee and they die'

It's a shame the different regulatory bodies don't follow the same guidelines regarding CPD.. it would certainly make things much less confusing.
However, I do appreciate that different countries have different rules and regs and these must be taken into consideration.
Must admit moving from UK to Aus certainly took some mental readjustment regarding CPD :)
fun fun fun !!

Thank you for the helpful link, Catfoot, but I have a better way.

I find that the well-placed application of the toecap of a boot, applied to the *, accompanied by a well-timed and swift dorsiflexion of the foot to be very effective (prophylactic flying lessons).

Done correctly, the cat will usually express its obvious pleasure at being weightless by emitting a loud and shrill squeal of delight.

The trick is to create a graceful parabolic trajectory, the end of which terminates beyond the boundary of my property. Extra points are scored if it lands in a heap of
bu££s*it.

This method is ecologically sound, and involves no chemicals whatever.

Lets just hope that those seriously interested to learn about P.A CPD points can actually sort out the wheat from the chaff on this thread, anyway.

I'm sure that the enquirers, being graduate pods, will have enough experience in critical analysis to do just that.

I'm sure the tips on removing cat pee will come in useful as well. I wish I had had that knowledge as a young NHS pod doing dommies in the back streets of Salford.

regards

Catfoot

BTW I have 3,903 CPD points but as they don't make prizes I may not cash them in .....

hmm, i wouldn't count on the CPD points here too much..
i requested a certificate, my points to be converted into hours.. back on the 30th of november, and paid straight away!!
Even after COUNTLESS emails to the admin here, and also lodging a paypal dispute - I STILL have not recieved my certificate!!
The threads that i have started here regarding this issue have ALL be deleted. I have started 2-3 , and every time I ask the admins / moderators to inform me why they have deleted ... they delete without explanations anyway!

Currently I'm requesting the paypal dispute to be escalated to claim back my $25... this unfortunately isn't the big deal.. losing out on a certificate kills me! I needed it for my podiatry accreditation... I ended up having to do something else! What a waste of time.

I am sorry you are having problems getting your certificate, but I am still looking for an answer to my question. This assumes, of course that you have received a receipt of your CPD points on this forum.

Does the American Board for Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics & Pedorthics (ABCOP) recognize the CPD points issued on this forum, and if so, what is the conversion rate from points to hours?

Anyone? Admins?

I know that the HPC, (Health Professions Council) here in Britain don't do the converting CPD points to hours anymore. It's all a bit woolly! I updated my skills in 2010 after several years off to have kids, I needed to complete 30hrs, but it wasn't as straight forward as 30 CPD = 30Hrs, and they are very picky as to which establishments/courses they recognise....Sorry that's not much help to you tho'.

To whoever it may concern,
I have sent the required money back in May and have still not yet received my CPD certificate.

I have sent repeated e-mails about this and no-one has replied.

If you have no intention of sending the certificate will you please refund my money.

I have opened a dispute with PayPal about this.

I am experiencing the same problem today, and it has been since November 2011 that Podiatry arena failed to post or e-mail a copy of cpd Certificate for me. I'm starting to wonder if this forum or whatsoever its called; is real or fake.

I've been taken for a ride with my own money & this is really painful since I put my trust in podiatry arena

Has anyone ever really gotten a cpd certificate from podiatry arena?

Sorry CEM, I can't answer your question but what I will say is that I have just had a refund of my money via the credit card company.

Mokgatle, I suggest you make contact your credit card company and they will tell you how to raise a dispute and obtain a refund.

I too have paid for my certificate via Paypal. I have been waiting about 6 weeks and have written numerous messages only receiving one response - a promise to provide the certificate!

Still waiting...

I suspect that this site may be a little fraudulent.
