eIntegrity, a new membership benefit

All members of the Institute of Chiropodists and Podiatrists (IOCP) and College of Foot Health can now access eIntegrity’s e-learning resources to support their professional development.

Members can use the Statutory and Mandatory Training, Dementia e-Learning Programme and Antimicrobial Resistance learning sessions. The programmes have been chosen for their relevance to practitioners in the IOCP – which represents HCPC[1]-registered podiatrists, podiatric surgeons and chiropodists in the UK.

Beverley Wright, Vice-Chair of the Board of Education, from the IOCP, said: “We’re pleased to offer these three programmes as a free benefit to our members, as part of our commitment to them.

“The practice of health and social care is built on effective communication and the ability to problem solve. This can be achieved remotely via distance learning programmes, such as eIntegrity’s, to develop our members’ understanding of statutory and mandatory content on Government and health guidelines, rules and regulations, and to facilitate professional development. It provides a foundation for all working aspects of our members’ practice.

“In today’s society there are a number of aspects that underpin health and social care, where continued professional development (CPD) is required and needs to be considered when delivering care. These CPD resources help equip members with the knowledge and understanding of key health issues, focusing on the main conditions prevalent in our society today.”

Richard Bryant, from eIntegrity, said: “We are delighted to make our e-learning available to the institute. Now, more than ever, we know that health and care professionals are finding our e-learning resources invaluable to support their development.

“We look forward to building on our relationship with the institute in the longer term and finding out how best we can support their members.”

Whilst the Coronavirus pandemic has changed the ways  in which we are all working, or not in many cases, people around the world are embracing and testing boundaries of modern technology. This is also true of our team at Head Office. As always the IOCP are committed to maintaining and offering our members the best possible service and support until such a time that we can start to go back to normal.

Therefore we have launched weekly Wednesday webinars, aptly dubbed “Wed-inars” to keep members and fellow podiatry colleagues in-touch and earning CPD during our period of downtime. It’s FREE, it’s for YOU!

Our first webinar was held on the 1st April and was warmly received by all attendees. If you missed it, a recording of the meeting can be found via our events pages or via our social sites.

The subjects are added to our events calendar on our website. You can register either via our Facebook page or by emailing secretary@iocp.org.uk with the subject line “Wed-inar CPD”.

From the 17th April, we will be introducing FHP Fridays for our Foot Health Practitioner friends of The College of Foot Health. More details of these will be released shortly.

If you are a Podiatrist or a FHP and would like a specific topic covered please get in touch and we’ll see what we can do!

Stay Safe.
