PodChatLive Episode 99 with Peta Tehan and Martin Fox [Vascular Podiatry]
In episode 14 back in March 2018 (nearly 4 years and 85 episodes ago) we were joined by Dr Peta Tehan from the University of Newcastle, Australia, and Mr Martin Fox from Manchester, UK to talk about lower limb vascular assessment. It remains one of our most popular episodes to date, so we thought we'd invite them back on to give us an update on Vascular Podiatry. What has changed in the last 4 years? Why should we all be doing femoral pulse checks and toe pressures as standard? And if your patient demographic is >60years old are you as familiar as you NEED to be with the 3P's of PAD assessment? Hope you enjoy the episode.
PodChatLive Episode 98 with Cathy Bowen [Getting Published in a Journal]
In this episode we were joined by Prof Cathy Bowen (Lead of the Foot & Ankle Research programme at Southampton University, Chair of the Research Committee for the Royal College of Podiatry, and Editor-in-Chief for JFAR) to talk about the timeline of a journal article, from the moment you think you have an idea for one, until the moment you are reading it in black and white. How do you choose what journal to submit to? What's the deal with ethical approval? How can you maximise your chances of not getting rejected? What does the peer review process look like? All this information and more.
PodChatLive Episode 97 with the Running Shoe Geeks
In this episode we were joined by "The Running Shoe Geeks": Podiatrists and old friends of PodChatLive Michael Nitschke (Nitta, Episode 66) and Thomas Do Canto (TDC, Episode 75), along with Australian long distance runner, running coach, owner of The Running Company Ballarat and host of The Inside Running Podcast Julian Spence. We geeked out about the best shoes of this year, what shoes looks best in the pub, and what new releases we can look forward to next year
PodChatLive Ep96 - Psyche of the Injured Athlete
In this episode we were joined by Dr Laura Miele who has over 30 years experience in the sport, fitness and education industry. She played Division I basketball at Arizona State; was Tight End for the Arizona Caliente, of the Women’s Professional Football League; and was also a New York Golden Gloves semi-finalist in 2004. She holds a PhD in Psychology (with emphasis in Sport & Exercise), and is author of the book 'Psyche of the Injured Athlete: The Unspoken Truths'. In this episode she described the psychology of injury, including concepts such as identity loss, the mental component of recovery, and how we as clinicians can be more mindful of discussions we are having with injured athletes.
Episode 95 with Lauren Welte [Windlass Mechanism]
In this episode we were joined with Dr Lauren Welte who is a postdoc fellow at Queens University in Canada, and completed her PhD in Mechanical Engineering, where she heavily focused on the function of the human foot. She shared with us what the Windlass Mechanism is (and the reverse Windlass Mechanism), a contemporary understanding of it Vs some traditional beliefs about it, what we still do not know about it (and future work planned to investigate it). We attempted to discuss some more applicable/clinical considerations, such as the Jacks test, the influence of footwear/foot orthoses and its (alleged) link with pathology.
PodChatLive Episode 94 with David Klyne [Relevance of Sleep]
In this episode we were joined with Dr David Klyne. David is a research fellow at UQ focusing on understanding the physiology of pain and the complex mechanisms that drive its persistence. Sleep is one of the most important factors to our physical and mental wellbeing. David takes us through just what an important (and bidirectional) relationship there is between pain and sleep, and gives us some pragmatic tips on how to enquire about a patients sleep hygiene and practices, what good sleep does and doesn't look like. Whether you are an MSK specialist or work in the Diabetes Centre, this is more important than you may think it is.
