A popular stream was when the hosts talked with Annette Davis and discussed just what evidence tells us and doesn’t tell us in regards to the role of shoes and falls the aged. Podiatry practitioners play an important role in offering their advice to this client group about the appropriate shoes that ought to be used to avoid falls or decrease the chance for falls occurring. Annette defined the function of the Podiatrist in the testing for falls risk and the way to communicate successfully to older people in regards to this. She created a quite strong case for those individuals of a certain age to be risk evaluated irrespective of why they can be coming to the clinic to see the podiatrist, even for an unrelated condition. Annette in addition described exactly why that older individuals choose certain shoes that are not likely suitable and the difficulties this will give to the Podiatrist-patient interactions. Annette is a Podiatrist from Melbourne , Australia and is also at present in the role of a Project Manager in the Department of Health and Human Services in the state of Victoria taking care of the difficulty of falls. She is presently working on her Doctor of Philosophy on shoes and falls at Monash University and wants to accomplish that soon.
