Through a quality improvement survey faculty of a foot care continuing education program in the Midwest sought to determine current practice and interest in expanding the current program, both didactic and clinical, to meet expanded requirements in certification criteria. Based on the results of the survey, they concluded there is value in offering the program with several modules where participants could complete an introductory course and have the option to participate in continued education should they decide to learn more, seek certification, or need continuing education for recertification.
