ALEXANDRIA, Va. – The American Board for Certification in Orthotics Prosthetics and Pedorthics will use the results of a recent survey to ensure that its pedorthist credentialing exam is relevant, and to identify content for in-service or continuing education, according to a press release. “The survey results will help define the certification, education and training of future pedorthists, in the development of valid and reliable examinations and convey to others outside our disciplines the scope of services provided by certified pedorthists,” said Dennis Dillard, C.Ped., CTO, chairman of the ABC’s Practice Analysis Task Force. The overall return rate for the survey was 27%.
