Podiatry WA was formed in 1966 as a professional association in Western Australia and continues to promote the podiatrist as the leaders of foot health in the community. We support our members by providing quality education, networking opportunities and advocacy for the profession.



There are many reasons why people have problems with their feet, ranging from simple changes that happen as we get older, to more complex issues that relate to conditions such as diabetes and arthritis which can make walking painful and difficult.



Podiatry WA members practices are located throughout metropolitan and rural Western Australia. Search our Find a Podiatrist WA member directory to find a private podiatry practice near you.

    Falls among older Australians remain a common health problem, with 30% of people aged over 65 falling each year, and hospitalisation rates for falls continuing to increase by almost 3% each year.  All health professionals have important roles in falls prevention, firstly specific to their disciplinary role, and secondly, to identify when older patients being seen require additional referral or education regarding their risk of falling.  This webinar will discuss the most common risk factors for falling, screening and assessment processes to determine falls risk, and provide a review of evidence based interventions for older people living in the community.  

    Join us for this informative session with Professor Keith Hill who is from the  School of Physiotherapy and Exercise Science at Curtin University.
