Live & Local events are on their way and they are not to be missed! These cost-effective education offerings are designed for podiatrists who work across the public, community, private and academic sectors.


What’s involved

Carefully curated, these half-day sessions take podiatrists through a range of clinical presentations and demonstrations to unlock fresh opportunities for skills development.


Perth is where it’s at


Based near Perth? Here’s what you can expect at the Live & Local in Perth, proudly sponsored by Restorate, and taking place on 12 May at the University of Western Australia.

Deeply practical,  this series of presentations cover different clinical areas such as high risk pathologies, fluoroscopy,  laser case studies and related demonstrations.

Dan Miles, head of advocacy at the APodA, will also be there to discuss advocacy issues and associated points for action. Tours of the surgical suites offer another highlight and once all of that has taken place, it’s time for canapes and networking opportunities! Be involved in this face-to-face CPD opportunity – at this not-to-be-missed local event.

Adelaide must-attend


Near Adelaide? Then the Live & Local is taking place on 26 May at the University of South Australia.

This event kicks off with a discussion, led by leaders in the podiatry profession, on the role of a vascular assessment and its place in the future of podiatry. Other topics include a reflection by Dr Helen Banwell on how podiatry students were taught during Covid – accompanied by a forecast on teaching hands-on skills into the future. Co-care relationships are also examined, with  guidance provided on when to hold patients and when to send them in for further medical intervention. There is also a live ulcer debriding showcase as this jam-packed day event draws to a close, before the location switches to Sportitude Running. This is where the pace slows down for some networking and overdue face-to-face time, a relative rarity since Covid began. The event sponsors, Sportitude, are also providing four free pairs of shoes as lucky door prizes at this add-on networking event, which starts at 4:30pm. Not only this, but Sportitude are also offering 30% off RRP to all in attendance.


Further afield


Not based in either of these locations? The good news is that we have more Live & Local events happening in the second half of 2023 – with Rockhampton already confirmed, and potential locations slated in NSW, ACT and Victoria.
