26/07/2011 This month announced the introduction of prescribing rights for Podiatrists in South Australia. However it hasn't come easily and has a number of provisos attached to make sure that those podiatrists who will gain the right to prescribe are set at the highest standard. These standards mean that nearly all podiatrists will be required to do more study. This is only one of the requirements, and in our opinion, the most important, as it means that our South Australian practitioners are up to date and ready to provide the highest level of care that is required with such a responsibility. Even our Senior Podiatrist, who has already studied a full year of pharmacology at university, will be required to do an additional subject- in short, it means we're going back to uni!
