We’ve just wrapped up our June Firefly MSK Workshop. The event was hosted in central London and was attended by 16 podiatrists from across the UK.
The goal of the workshop is to increase the knowledge of the attendees so they treat more complex foot and ankle pathologies when they return to their own clinics.
The course is designed with a focus on practical learning but the event got underway with Firefly podiatrist Sarah O’Connell delivering some biomechanics theory as a starting point.
The mid-morning session introduced the more practical elements of the course with attendees learning simple but effective MSK assessments.
To keep the workshop attendees fueled, Firefly offered a diverse and healthy lunch menu which was very positively received going by the post-event feedback.
In the afternoon our UK Client Support Lead, Eimear Kenny delivered a module on prescription writing. This module explored pathology specific orthoses and materials.
Martin Mc Geough, Firefly’s Founder and Medical Director demonstrated plaster of Paris casting techniques and developments in 3D scanning technology.
The course was brought to a close with the group working through a number of MSK related case studies.
All Firefly’s educational events are accredited by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons, Glasgow, with each attendees earning 6 CPD points.
