One well-liked show was when the hosts talked with Annette Davis and discussed just what evidence tells us and doesn’t tell us with regards to the part of footwear and falls in older people. Podiatry practitioners participate in a huge role in advising this client group about the correct footwear which should be used to avoid falls or decrease the risk for falls occurring. She spelled out the function of the Podiatrist in the testing for falls risk and ways to talk successfully to older people in regards to this. She made a pretty strong case for those people of a particular age to be risk evaluated no matter why they are coming to the clinic to see a podiatrist, even for an unrelated problem. She in addition discussed the reasons why that older individuals select particular shoes that are most likely not appropriate and also the problems this can give to the Podiatrist-patient communications. Annette is a Podiatrist from Melbourne , Australia and is also at this time serving as a Project Supervisor with the Department of Health and Human Services from the state of Victoria focusing on the difficulty of falls. She is currently working on her Doctor of Philosophy on shoes and falls at Monash University and plans to conclude this shortly.
