Firefly Orthoses will be attending Podopaediatrics on July 1st. The event takes place at the Holiday Inn, Birmingham City Centre. The theme for the day is “Rheumatology – Painful and swollen, may be not, let’s make it simple”. The organisers describe the event as such:
Children’s rheumatology is a concerning and debilitating set of conditions that require careful assessment, consideration and treatment or referral. This day will open your eyes to the diagnosis, effects and management of body wide effects of rheumatology in children including podiatry, physiotherapy, the medical model, and pain management strategies.
Our aim has always been to provide a day for everybody, with the ability to take some new skills and strategies away and use it the day after, this will conference will very much follow that theme and will be packed with up to date, cutting edge and evidence based practical skills for all.
This is shaping up to be the usual excellent day, not to be missed, and will offer something for everybody from the student through to the established practitioner.
