Supporting chiropodists and podiatrists across the UK

All members of the Institute of Chiropodists and Podiatrists (IOCP) can now access eIntegrity’s e-learning resources to support their professional development.

Members can use the Statutory and Mandatory Training, Dementia e-Learning Programme and Antimicrobial Resistance learning sessions. The programmes have been chosen for their relevance to practitioners in the IOCP – which represents HCPC[1]-registered podiatrists, podiatric surgeons and chiropodists in the UK.

Beverley Wright, Vice-Chair of the Board of Education, from the IOCP, said: “We’re pleased to offer these three programmes as a free benefit to our members, as part of our commitment to them.”

“The practice of health and social care is built on effective communication and the ability to  problem solve. This can be achieved remotely via distance learning programmes, such as eIntegrity’s, to develop our members’ understanding of statutory and mandatory content on Government and health guidelines, rules and regulations, and to facilitate professional development. It provides a foundation for all working aspects of our members’ practice.Podiatry Small

“In today’s society there are a number of aspects that underpin health and social care, where continued professional development (CPD) is required and needs to be considered when delivering care. These CPD resources help equip IOCP members with the knowledge and understanding of key health issues, focusing on the main conditions prevalent in our society today.”

Richard Bryant, from eIntegrity, said: “We are delighted to make our e-learning available to the institute. Now, more than ever, we know that health and care professionals are finding our e-learning resources invaluable to support their development.

“We look forward to building on our relationship with the institute in the longer term and finding out how best we can support their members.”
