Resources

Nursing foot care is a practice that always considers our patients and clients holistic’s needs. We realize that we must practice as part of the greater health care team. Our care often intersects and overlaps the care given by other health professionals. To help us do this we draw on resources from a wide variety of other sources as well as our own to help us be valuable team members.
