NEWS UPDATE

It might seem like things have been a little quiet at AFARNet in 2023, but a lot has been happening behind the scenes. We are currently involved in a collaborative project with APERF examining research priorities for the Australian podiatry profession, which involves AFARNet members Prof Hylton Menz, Dr Shan Bergin (Chair of APERF), Dr Helen Banwell, Dr Peta Tehan and Dr Sheree Hurn. This will include both a bibliographic assessment of foot and ankle research conducted in Australia, and a Delphi project to determine research priorities. We will let members know how things are progressing. Watch this space!
