Covid 19 Survey
The survey has not been constructed for research purposes, but rather as a way to give our clientele a voice and hopefully assist the FCN’s with direction in how to best serve our clients safely should a second wave in the fall occur. Please feel free to share this with other foot care nurses. The survey link can be found on the website: www.peded.ca or https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/How_are_the_clien
To support and facilitate the continued professional and educational growth of all foot care nurses within the Lower Mainland Foot Care Nurses Association.
Who We Are
We are a group of independent foot care nurses from British Columbia who have formed an association that meets at regular intervals to exchange ideas and new information about our profession. We are not akin to or a substitute for podiatry medicine.
As registered nurses, registered psychiatric nurses, licensed practical nurses and nurse practitioners we provide foot care to clients in various settings throughout the lower mainland. The service is available to any individual that is unable to perform his or her own foot care due to medical, physical or mental health deficits. In the process of delivering foot care we complete a comprehensive assessment that considers the physical, emotional, psychosocial, economic and spiritual needs of the person in relation to this very important aspect of self-care. We collaborate with various members of the clients healthcare team and we refer clients to appropriate professionals when needed. All services delivered to clients are guided by Best Practice and Professional Standards, Scope of Practice, Standards, Limits and Conditions, Code of Ethics and Regulatory Bylaws as set out in BCCN
