In light of the Covid-19 Pandemic and the challenges it has caused to normal practice, a working group was formed to assist our clinicians in providing a virtual service.
This group has worked incredibly hard in a very short timescale to produce some new guidance for the profession and we would like to thank them all for their work.
The attached guidelines have been created to allow Orthotists to pro-actively rise to the challenges faced in the current climate and enable Orthotists to still treat non-urgent patients without the need for face-to-face consultations in a standard orthotic clinic
You can find these guidelines here BAPO Guidelines for Virtual Patient Assessment or in the education resource section of the website
If you have any feedback or questions relating to these guidelines please email firstname.lastname@example.org
