Professional Development for Werkman, Boven & Associates Team

Posted on Tuesday, November 27th, 2018

CFPM logoEarlier this month, the entire Werkman, Boven & Associates team attended the Canadian Federation of Podiatric Medicine Conference from November 8-10.

This year’s program offered chiropodists, podiatrists, office staff and other health professionals the opportunity to attend a dynamic, education conference that is essential to professional development. The CFPM conference is an excellent opportunity for practitioners and assistants to learn new skills and meet with peers.

We enjoyed lectures and workshops led by an impressive array of experts in various fields related to podiatric medicine. The 2018 Conference had something for everyone with renowned international speakers, interactive seminars, and hands on workshops. Topics included: diabetes, dermatology, biomechanics, various equipment demonstration, etc.

In addition to attending the 3-Day CFPM Conference:

  • Kaitlyn Crewe and Kelley North completed St. John’s Ambulance Standard First Aid – CPR C – AED training.
  • Rick Werkman, Vicki Werkman, and Kaitlin (Werkman) Boven completed Heart & Stroke – Basic Life Support (BLS) (CPR and AED) training.

We’ve also added a portable Automated External Defibrillator (AED) electronic device to our clinic. We are prepared for every health emergency.

Kaitlin (Werkman) Boven is enrolled in this program offered by the Health Leadership & Learning Network at York University.

The program is focused on educating health care professionals working in wound care to be knowledgeable, skilled and clinically prepared to assist individuals with chronic wounds.
