Assessment of web based case studies
One of the Podiatry Board of Australia’s (Board) stated requirements for an Endorsement for Scheduled Medicine (ESM) for Pathway 2 is the completion of 15 Board approved web-based case studies. These written case studies are expected to cover a range of pathologies relevant to podiatry, and require applicants to review and extend their knowledge to prescription of medicines across the Board’s National Podiatry Scheduled Medicines List.
The Board requires that the web-based case studies be undertaken after completion of an approved program of study in podiatric therapeutics but prior to commencing the requirements for supervised practice for ESM as set out in the Board’s Podiatry endorsement for scheduled medicines registration standard http://www.podiatryboard.gov.au/Registration-Standards.aspx
From May 2015, ANZPAC will undertake the assessment of web-based case studies developed by education providers and make a recommendation for their approval to the Board.
