CME and the New Normal

CME and the New Normal

We all hear the term “new normal”.  The new normal for podiatry CME is on-line, virtual lectures.  At least for the immediate future.

This may not be a bad thing.  No more losing travel days and office hours.  No more hotel bills.  It should be cheaper, not bad at a time of decreased patient volumes, decreased surgeries, decreased office revenues.

We know that virtual CME requirements can be met without the worry of getting ill from transmissible diseases.

Worried about people actually listening to the lectures ?  Did you ever compare the number of people actually in the lecture halls with the number of people registered for a live on site meeting ? 

Other than the appointed time for “scanning”, it’s hard to tell in many lecture halls if greater than 100 people are registered for any meeting.  Attendance has never been enforced , at least not effectively.  Conversely, it’s easy to enforce attendance with virtual meetings using random, unannounced “check ins” verifying the registrant is actually listening.  I suspect those accustomed to the Presents, Mid-West, IFAF, Region whatever APMA meetings will not be comfortable with virtual education and its somewhat enforced attendance.  That is, if the virtual CME providers enforce CPME rules.

It’s a good thing that the old lecture crews made their money previously.  Gone are the Dermagraft and Jublia $2,500. lecturer fees.  Gone are the breakfast, lunch, dinner lectures at which the “leaders of the profession” made Warren Joseph and Hal Ornstein hundreds of thousands of dollars.  Oftentimes millions. 

Virtual CME should be less expensive.  The organizers have no hotel bills.  They pay the speakers no travel fees.  Alas, no free party for the meeting organizers. 

And the poor exhibitors !  You know, the people who still refer to podiatry seminars as “shows”.  The seminar hucksters will cry about lost exhibitor income.  So what ? 

They have less bills to pay.  Other than paying speakers, seminars would be “virtually free”.

Always rapidly adjusting to the times, the crooks and shysters and hucksters have already adjusted in Darwinian manner.  “Free CME” which is basically a sales pitch for some drug or product is already spreading like the inside of a toilet bowl following a bout of explosive diarrhea.   Just check your e-mails or PM News.  The parade of self serving academically unaccomplished former APMA presidents and future presidents are already hawking their wares on line.  Like the rat population overwhelming New York City, they have quickly found new ways to cannibalize their young to survive.  The content of virtual CME can be manipulated by commercial and self serving interests just as easily as these interests are manipulated with on site CME programs.  Lecturemercials are already running rampant. 

Baseball, Football, Basketball will still make their money without fans in the seats.  So will those who have manipulated the podiatry CME world.   Talar Tuesday anybody ?  Presents “free education” anyone? 

Foot typing education required ?  Hell, you’ve got two women already running a website telling you where to go for education, with a list of contributors that reads like a who’s who of podiatry grifters.

If the new normal is virtual CME, new rules and regulations must be developed and ENFORCED.  Not the same ineffective farce that has been allowed to exist previously. 

Use the new normal to recruit more M.D. and Ph.D speakers, as it will now be more convenient for them to present materials.  And they won’t have to worry about the embarrassment of being seen with a group of podiatrists. Use the new normal to rid the profession of the leeches and rodents who have manipulated podiatry education for their own personal gain for years.  Use the new normal to incorporate the many excellent non-DPM materials already available.

So you miss the fellowship and bar times ?  Well the bars are closed.  The restaurants are closed.  If you want a good time invite your podiatry friends to join you on a vacation. 

Those who claim they learn more by the social interactions at a meeting than in the lecture hall are speaking volumes about the quality of podiatry CME.

Relax.  Enjoy the comfort of CME at your home or office. 

Hope that the meeting organizers use the moment to improve the quality of education and divest commercial influence. 

The reality ?  At the present, why would you risk the health of yourself or your family to travel and attend a “live meeting”.

State boards and CPME need to make appropriate regulatory adjustments.   Immediately !

It’s the new normal.   No free cookies or donuts.  No free wound care bullshit breakfast meeting.  No free latest in unnecessary and expensive orthopedic vexation lunches. 

And dinners.  No more free hats, umbrellas, pens.  Do not fret.  The old time salespeople will return to your offices with breakfast and lunch to compensate.

It’s the new normal.

It was always a structural problem with the podiatricians. They “thought” they were doctors, and instead of structural changing the education/training, they changed words…they changed bullshit. A lil sound byte here, there, everywhere to dupe the rubes. When they were chiropodists-they acted in their scope, knew their place, and performed a valuable service. However, they decided in their quest, lust, and fervor to gain more economic advancement to pretend to be physicians. Hence, doctor through the backdoor–/suing/schmoozing/boozing/coding for scope without the requisite schooling, training, etc…Just call yourself X and you are X.

Aureola borealis pattern check it out on medscape. Why spend money on a pathology specimen when this pattern is present on a toenail plate? The answer is the standard of care of most podiatrists is to send for biopsy. Why perform a transmetatarsal amputation and not try dermatoscopic debridement to attempt to heal gangrenous toes and attempt to have them grow back? The standard of care is to wait for that line of demarcation and to perform a transmetatarsal amputation as per vascular specialists suggesting to do so.

Robert as far as your question toes begin to grow back look again at the pre and post pictures at http://www.journalofdermoscopy.com
And judge for yourself.
Osseous structures removed the sof tissue structures of toes regranulate and another name for this is growing back and becoming longer that they were pre treatment.
Robert, if you see a picture why not take the pre vs the post op picture seriously?
I believe scientists take pictures seriously.

Depends on which of the two (or both) meet objective scientific adequate statistical sampling. That should be obvious to even a podiatrist.

Statistical sampling is not needed to prove toes began to grow back if this is the first time such an event occurred. Pre and post op photos of the event are accepted as evidence of this by mds. Podiatrists posting here posted the event never occurred even though photos are posted. Whose opinions would you rely on, a podiatrist posting at pod post, or an md?

Regarding being stuck in New York,
Robert, are you assuming that the board of medical Examiners in every state did not look beyond their normal one year residency requirements and that they never granted an experienced podiatric physician board certified by abpoppm the license to treat the ankle? Yes podiatric physician is the definition of a podiatrist in some states.

Check the connecticut state law regarding medically treatment of the ankle and that state legislation that recognizes board certification by abpoppm. Also such board certification by abpm is helpful getting hospital privileges.
But my personal opinion is that an md degree allows one an unlimited scope of practice. . My personal opinion is I would prefer an unlimited scope of practice rather than be limited. Afterwards one could specialize.

What grown man writes into a censored propaganda advertizing blast talking about all the “stress” (???-hyped bad flu) and needing funny shoe pictures to look at to relieve that “stress”?

Robert, are you saying it would have been practical for my patient to have a transmetatarsal amputation and likely lose his leg rather than to heal his gangrenous toes with dermatoscopic debridement and have his toes begin to grow back?
This is advanced limb salvage that likely will be practiced 30 years from now. People might look back and see how barbaric the current wound care standards are.

When a TRUE PEER REVIEW MD JOURNAL attests that you can grow toes back regularly and when you get awarded the Noble Prize I’ll apologize and eat my words.

Robert, to say there is no such thing when ther are pictures posted proving it happened is illogical.
Logic relies upon photographic evidence.
Furthermore if the journalofdermoscopy.com was unrecognized at all, there would not be any isbn number assigned. Lastly mds are logical because they look at the pictures pre and post and as scientists they understand a picture tells 1000 words.
If dermatoscopic foot surgery did not exist, those pictures would not exist. Newsflash the

Robert, pictures posted at http://www.journalofdermoscopy.com
2nd issue and the PowerPoint presentation are not opinions but facts. A look trying for attention does not present pictures clearly displaying gangrenous toes followed by a picture of the toes healed and becoming longer beginning to grow back.
This is why mds that saw these pictures were positively impressed. Then again podiatrists at pod post think otherwise. For a podiatrist to say there is no such thing as toes growing back and pictures are clearly posted online showing toes becoming
Longer, well I would ask anyone reading this post to look at the pic6and judge for themselves.

There are pictures of flying saucers too and they are found to be photographic anomalies and distortions.

This was a reply from an md vascular specialist after they saw pre and post pictures regarding my treatment of gangrenous toes He did not question the validity of such pictures. Only some podiatrists did.

anomynous anomynous

I said that those were gangrenous toes before and that the post picture represents a healed toe that got longer likely because of soft tissue regrowth. I thought that if I showed pictures people would not question their authenticity. I have always been honest in my statements. For example, when I advertised about foot orthotics I clearly said one could spend their .oney and lose their money and there are no guarantees. Another example, using felt at no extra charge in shoes to try to save patients money. Honesty and integrity is what I feel is so important. Treat others… Read more »

Proving what pictures are what I say happened.

There is a pathology report read by an md posted at the PowerPoint presentation showing the boney necrosis. There are other pictures supporting the time flow of what happened. A series of pictures supporting the pre and post pictures might be helpful to enable the readership to understand how such positive results were obtained.
By the way, offloading the area was also done.
Powdered antibiotics onto osseus structures. There is a whole story behind this, but dermatoscopic foot surgery was a big part.
By the way it is not stupid to get such impressive results.

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS DERMATOSCOPIC FOOT SURGERY. You’re making up the term. Can you do a dematoscopic bunion? Neuroma? Heel spur? NO? Then You are not doing foot surgery. Btw. You state the path said bony necrosis. I thought dematoscopy eliminated the need for path!!! and did any path show YOU GREW NEW BONE AND NEW TOES?

So was the patient. The real danger in these particular cases of 3 gangrenous toes was following the current standard of care which… Read more »

anomynous anomynous

When someone states an observation such as the toes got longer, and they want evidence that what they said is true, pictures taken is supportive evidence that this happened.
For example I recall ghi medicare many years ago used to require pictures were taken in order to get reimbursed for mycotic toenail debridement.
My guess is they wanted photographic documentation that what was said in the chart actually happened.

Yes Dan Podiatrists know more than MD’s. After all we’re taught the MD doesn’t know anything about the foot. Podiatrists are ‘THE PREMIER GOLD STANDARD’ FOR FOOT CARE AND FOOT OPINIONS! So the podiatrists opinions here are correct and WE SAY YOU’RE NUTS!

I’M SURE YOURE TYPE IS EXACTLY WHAT MAKES PODIATRY A JOKE. There are too many Dan Chaskin’s in Podiatry. Go back to BLOCK. You’re both NON DOCTORAL MATERIAL. IS MY POSITION CLEAR?!

Making conclusions without looking at pictures???
MDs do not do this. Why should podiatrists posting here make conclusions without looking at pictures.
Robert, everyone has kindness in them. We all are out to help each other. It is so important for all of us to be friends.

I looked up the definition of an idiot. An idiot is someone that is stupid which is having or showing a great lack of intelligence or common sense
Posting pictures documenting tremendously improved results does not fit the above definition. We are all frustrated in this pandemic. Let us try to emphasize the positive in everyone and realize that we share the joy of helping our patients prevent pain, morbidity and to have a higher quality of life. Friendship with each other is so important.

This discussion about dermatoscopic foot surgery is not limited to podiatry. By the way, I learned about dermoscopy basics from mds and their texts, etc…
As far as becoming an M D this I believe might be a better choice for many because of the unlimited scope.

Read what you just said you fool. How does dermascopy give you unlimited scope? You truly are a Barry Block type of podiatrist. I’m certain you are enjoying the most attention you have ever gotten. Have a nice day. Wear a mask, fondle a shoe, talk to a psychiatrist.

I never said that dermoscopy would give unlimited scope.
“As far as becoming an M D this I believe might be a better choice for many because of the unlimited scope.”

Robert, in your previous comment you stated “I’M NOT WEARING A MASK”, and now you are suggesting that I wear a mask. I feel you do care about preventing the spread of Covid-19 or else you never would have advised me to wear a mask.
Thank you so much for your suggestion regarding wearing a mask. Please have a wonderful day.

I am not emphasizing about podiatry vs being an MD. I am speaking about dermatoscopic foot sugery and other steps taken to explain why the pictures taken show painful gangrenous toes healed and longer in appearance.
As far as having an unlimited scope such as an md,
For the same amount of time spent 4 years medical school 3 years residency training personally this I would prefer.

If you could only understand the superficiality and inaccuracies of your statements you would be embarrassed. The fact that your don’t demonstrates an inability to objectively discern. A poor quality in anyone involved in science, even a podiatrist. A sample of one is meaningless. A picture is meaningless. Only multiple independent reproducible OBSERVED, AND MEASURED CHANGES (not photos) have scientific relevance. You should have learned that in a college course before foot school. Podiatrists continue to demonstrate that they didn’t master the BASIC sciences and that makes them TECHNICIANS NOT DOCTORS. Dan, with all due respect, you represent the INTELLECTUAL… Read more »

The subject matter is that it is possible to heal gangrenous toes and the soft tissue granulation while healing with dermatoscopic foot surgery with enough tunneling allows the soft tissue to close regranulated heal and become longer. http://www.journalofdermoscopy.com Photos can show measurements of short vs longer. Multiple scientific changes are shown in the PowerPoint presentation. As far as reproduction of results, the 3rd toe healed and became longer. This result was reproduced in the 4th toe and again in the 5th gangrenous toe. They were simultaneously being treated. Dermatoscopic foot surgery is also helpful in helpng heel ulcers etc… Robert,… Read more »

There is no shame regarding gramatical errors the real shame is not explaining to patients about the potential option of dermatoscopic foot surgery to attempt to avoid an unnecessary amputation. The shame is this procedure is not cost effective, very time consuming, yet has the potential to decrease suffering and painful complications when combined with other treatments.

I’m reminded of a lake deep in the Adirondacks we canoed and backed packed to when I was pre-pod. Quite a large scenic lake where we expected to fly fish and enjoy. It looked very inviting with great fishing potential. Soon we found that the lake was only about 6′ deep at its deepest and had a yellow tinge from the tannic acid of the flora and acid rain. It looked so beautiful until it was inspected more carefully. BEWARE of SHALLOW lakes. Some professions are actually SHALLOW though PHENOTYPICALLY attractive. Don’t be fooled by appearances.

$600 in addition to unemployment. $600 might be 3 times as much as the unemployment!
Podiatrists qualified for $600 per week. My guess is some podiatrists are helped out very much by this $600 per week additional payment.

anomynous anomynous

Just one question. Instead of selling an item to a patient why not do what I do. Go to amazon with the patient and look around for the cheapest price and point this out to the patient. This way the patient saves money. My guess is most podiatrists are doing this.

Didn’t know that pods were eligible for unemployment. Nonetheless Seth brought out an interesting point re continuing education: “…it’s easy to enforce attendance with virtual meetings using random, unannounced “check ins” verifying the registrant is actually listening.” Virtual symposia often have a pre-test, question and answer, and actual interaction with the presenters, and the post test, and survey. A few weeks later many send a test to check recollection, and then an evaluation of the speakers and what you retained and how you’ll put it to use. There are some wholly boring topics, but there is often something directly related… Read more »

As Walter Lippmann said: “Where all think alike, no one thinks very much.”
And in the US empire, the black and white, R vs D vs whatever corporate puppet, “vote,” Left vs Right view of us “life” polarizes every issue. So critical thinking, questioning the dominant narrative, presenting evidence -based arguments are no longer tolerated There’s no shades of grey or multiple causes. Just feelings and emoting. Perhaps, it is a much simpler, or rather, simpleton/rube way to live. Go podupetry! Happy, happy. Now, save those limps.

A mature profession of medical scientists (instead of medical businessmen) would have laughed the Joker off the stage the 1st time he recited from the pkg insert and would never invite him back again, but podiatry has no real scientists so acting and pretending like one is an easy and lucrative con.
