APMA News - February 2013 - (Page 40)

Website Wisdom APMA.org: Back to Basics As discussed in the July/August 2012 issue of APMA News, content on the new APMA.org website has been streamlined into a new structure with just four main sections: Learn About Feet, Education and Professional Development, Manage Your Practice, and APMA Working for You. Clicking directly on the name of a section in the top navigation menu takes you to the section landing page, which highlights some of the key content in that area. However, if you dig down into these sections, you will unearth a further wealth of information. By now, you’ve probably explored each section a little but may not be aware of all of the features available in each. This article explores in more detail two of these sections: Learn About Feet and Education and Professional Development. Learn About Feet The Learn About Feet section features information on foot health for your patients and the general public, such as footcare tips, advice from expert podiatrists, and podiatrist-recommended shoes and other products. This section is home to the popular Find a Podiatrist search tool, which allows patients to search for APMA member podiatrists in their areas. In addition, on the right side of every page in the section is the Find a Podiatrist quick search tool, making it easy for patients to find a podiatrist, no matter what page they visit. Once they’ve found a doctor, patients can visit the Prepare for Your Appointment page for a helpful checklist. The Ask the Expert online tool allows users to submit foot health questions to be answered in a video by an APMA member podiatrist. Answers are sorted by topic so patients can easily browse existing answers before submitting a question. Foot Health Information contains pages with general information on common foot conditions and treatments. Each condition/treatment page is broken down into standard sections, enabling users to find information like causes, symptoms, and when to visit a podiatrist. The Tips for Healthy Feet section provides advice on foot care and footwear selection, including pedicure safety tips and a guide for selecting running shoes. • • • • • Website FAQ I’m looking for a colleague’s contact information. Can I look that up on APMA.org? APMA provides members with the Member Directory, which is available from the My APMA section on the top right corner of every page. The directory provides a listing of all APMA members that can be searched by name or location. Visit www.apma.org/myapma. 40 APMA News February 2013 • • • The Footwear & Products page has information on the APMA Seal of Acceptance/Approval Program, including listings of seal-holding products sorted by both company and category. The News section contains updates specifically of interest to a patient audience. The Foot Health Awareness and Diabetes Awareness pages are where users can find APMA’s annual education campaigns. The 2012 campaigns focused on teen foot health and diabetes awareness among the Hispanic population. Education and Professional Development Whether you are just beginning a career in podiatry or looking to sharpen your skills, the Education and Professional Development section contains the learning and career resources you need. In this section, you can access information from the Council on Podiatric Medical Education, sign up for an APMA webinar, and find resources for young physicians. On the Podiatric Education page, prospective and current students can learn more about each stage of podiatric medical education, including information about podiatric medical colleges, APMA scholarships, a list of residency programs, and fellowships and research opportunities. From this page, you can also access the Residency Education Resource Center, an online learning resource to further the education of podiatric residents on a variety of topics. The Continuing Education page describes all continuing education opportunities available from APMA, including how to earn continuing education contact hours at the Annual Scientific Meeting (The National). APMA creates webinars on a variety of topics, including practice management, advocacy, public relations, and more. On the Webinars page, you can browse and sign up for upcoming APMA webinars or view previously recorded webinars. The Young Physicians page features publications, events, and other resources designed with the unique needs of new practitioners in mind. On the Careers in Podiatry page, prospective students can learn more about a career in podiatric medicine, including links to resources provided by the American Association of Colleges of Podiatric Medicine. • • • • • We hope that you’ll continue to explore the variety of resources available for you and your patients in these sections. n Next Month: Explore the resources available in the Manage Your Practice and APMA Working for You sections.
