Podiatry in 3 Minutes

Do you ever read a paper and wonder what you’ve just read, is it important and should it change your practice? Here at Tomorrow’s Podiatry we invite the researchers to explain their papers in 3 minutes. Can they fit in the what, why, when, where and how in just 180 seconds?

Hosts Jen Andrews and Sinéad Flynn join in to find out with a little help from some friends we explore where the paper sits in the wider body of evidence and what it should mean for your practice before taking questions from the audience.

If you are the author of a paper and would like join us to present your research please email the team at info@TomorrowsPods.com for more information.

I graduated from the University of Salford with a Podiatry BSc in 2019. I am now in the second year of my PhD, investigating the Soft Tissue Characteristics of the Foot within the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training and Prosthetics.

Through encouraging communication between researchers and clinicians I aspire to aid the translation of research outcomes into clinical practice and tailor our research priorities to reflect clinical need.

PhD student within the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Prosthetics and Orthotics, based at the University of Salford.

Area of study: Soft Tissue Characteristics of the Foot.

Primary Supervisor: Professor Chris Nester. Co-supervisors: Dr Farina Hashmi, Dr Carina Price and Dr Daniel Parker.

I graduated with a Bsc in Podiatric Medicine from the National University of Ireland, Galway in 2020. Since then I have been awarded the Tomorrow’s Podiatry student of the year award for 2020, commenced a research masters through NUI Galway, and started working part time in a local podiatry practice.

I have always had a particular interest in diabetic foot care and with the disruptions experienced in the provision of care due to COVID-19, I decided to focus my research masters on Investigating the care of active diabetic foot disease during these government imposed restrictions.

As a new graduate I have found this series extremely helpful in translating all the new and emerging research into its clinical implication, and, being able to question the brains behind the research is a privilege in itself!

Area of study: Care of active diabetic foot disease during the covid-19 pandemic restrictions.

Primary Supervisor: Professor Caroline McIntosh. Co-supervisors: Prof Sean Dinneen and Dr Akke Vellinga.
