The BAPO course “Assessment, Diagnosis and Treatment of Musculoskeletal Foot and Ankle Problems for Orthotists” was initially developed to support Orthotists working in the modern NHS. The NHS has streamlined services to reduce the strain on Orthopaedics, and AHP’s are increasingly relied upon to diagnose and treat Musculoskeletal conditions.
Evidence based treatment protocols were developed as part of a national MSK work stream in Scotland and published in Apr 2015. The course was created to support Orthotists treating MSK conditions in clinical practice, and ran from 2015-2018, inclusive.
Over this 4-year period, the course expanded and changed with the evidence, such that the content delivered between 2015-2016, was significantly different to that which was delivered between 2017-2018.
Upon reviewing the course content in detail, and at the request of many members of the profession; the course has been renamed and agreement received from OETT to consider reimbursement for those who did not attend the previous course, AND for those who attended the original course between 2015-2016.
