Resources for Foot Care Nurses in Canada
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.
This listing of resources will grow over time. Only resources from recognized health professional agencies or institutions will be listed. Preference will be given to web–accessible resources that are most closely related to nursing foot care and the types of clients that we most commonly see.
If you have a web–accessible resource that you would like to see listed here, please send an email containing the resource information and contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
