THis may not be exactly what you are after, but it is the core competencies for a newly graduating podiatrist in Australia

http://www.anzpac.org.au/pdf/PodiatryCompetencies.pdf

A definition of core podiatry treatment or general podiatry care is making some assumptions that all patients are the same. The core "treatment" for a muscular skeletal injury will differ completely to that for a newly diagnosed person with diabetes, a person with an ingrown toe nail, a person returning for a 6 week nail clipping etc.

Though in all of these cases there are some basic assessments that should probably always be carried out

eg: Ftwr assessment, checking of pulses and taking a thougher patient history.

Again with all that said, the profession (at least in Aus) would interpret general care as cutting and filing of the toes nails plus removal of any corns or callus, if given no further onformation.

Hi,
I have a definition and reference for core podiatry.
Core podiatry is the assessment, diagnosis
and treatment of common and more
complex lower-limb pathologies associated
with the toenails, soft tissues and
musculoskeletal system, with the purpose
of sustaining or improving foot health. Farndon L. The Function and Purpose of Core
Podiatry: An in-Depth Analysis of Practice.
Sheffield: Sheffield Hallam University; 2006.

Hope this helps, Lisa

Todish seems to be making it clear that he is talking about treatment and not assessment.

Hopefully he is not referring to cutting, thinning and clearing toe nails and whacking off hard skin which 'used to' occupy 90% of the chiropodist's' treatment' time and was for so long considered to be and scribed as 'general chiropody' and might well have been updated or replaced by the term 'core podiatry'.


Best wishes,

Bill
