Webinar with the Royal College of Podiatry

Growing pains – bringing the team together

“Growing Pains” in children are common, worrying for parents, and poorly understood. But what treatment or advice can we give? What is the outlook? And how do we avoid missing other potentially serious diagnoses? In this collaboration between The Royal College of Podiatry (RCPod) and Orthopaedic Research UK (ORUK), we tackled these issues and explored how we work together in the best interest of patients.

Target audience:

MSK podiatrists, orthopaedic registrars and consultants

Serial Casting Podcast:

Specialist paediatric podiatrists Nina Davies and James Welch discuss the challenges and rewards of paediatric practice with children’s orthopaedic surgeons Michalis Kokkinakis and Gavin Spence. In this first podcast of the series, they explore the differences between adult and children’s conditions, the mutual need for multidisciplinary team-working, and how best to achieve that.
