We offer NZ podiatrists focussed, affordable and timely CPD education.
PBNZ CPD Log Friendly
The Podiatric Medical Practitioners CPD Network has been formed by podiatrists, for podiatrists, to support them in achieving their CPD (continuing professional development) goals. Other medical and health care professionals are also welcome to attend Network events where topics have a shared interest and relevance.
The Podiatric Medical Practitioners CPD Network (PodMedNet) is based in New Zealand currently in the Wellington Region but is open to all podiatrists wherever they practice. There is a particular focus on the CPD requirements of the Podiatrists’ Board of New Zealand.
The Network is largely informal, where collegiality and participation are highly valued and encouraged. Everyone can contribute in some way.
We communicate with Members via e-mail which is why we require a valid e-mail address
The primary focus of the PMPCPDN is to provide a cost & time effective forum for podiatrists to achieve their required PBNZ Log Book/CPD Points
Our annual educational program is designed to cover the "compulsory" PBNZ CPD topics supplemented by educational events of interest to all NZ registered scopes of practice
We encourage constructive social media interaction via the PMPCPDN Facebook Page & also on the Footnotes Podiatrists Forum Facebook Group Page.

PBNZ CPD Log -Points Ready
The CPD Network Education Committee is happy to consider requests for specific topics. The Network intends to facilitate a range of timely and relevant education and training events which are sensitive to the needs of ‘real world’ podiatric practice. It is hoped that these events, offered in a friendly and collegial environment, will help members to enjoy achieving their CPD aims, particularly in the context of the recertification programme of the Podiatrists’ Board of NZ

Why Select Us?
The Network’s primary goal is to assist podiatric medical practitioners to keep abreast of the stringent requirements around maintaining competence. Competence assurance results in positive business outcomes.
Podiatric Medicine has a wealth of experienced practitioners willing to share their best practice knowledge. The PodMedNet is constantly tapping into that knowledge base to provide relevant and timely education to its members.
The PodMedNet aims to provide ultimate satisfaction and value to its members. The Network strives to determine what information and educational content its members require in order to realise those objectives.
The PodMedNet understands the difficulties of marrying business and personal commitment. We have embraced online webinar technology to replace regular physical meetings.
Our educational calendar will still require short physical events where hands-on participation may be required (eg. CPR) and an Annual Conference is planned to take place each year.
The reasoning behind the establishment of the PodMedNet is to establish a collegial network for educational purposes, rather than for political lobbying. Emphasis is placed upon providing its members with the CPD required in order to fulfil the legislated requirements of the MOH HPCA Act 2003

28/03/2023 – PodMedNet LOBBIES PARLIAMENT OVER THE PHENOL DEBACLE
All Podiatrists have been severely stressed, and their patients health and wellbeing compromised by Medsafe’s ruling on the acess of Podiatrists to Phenol.
The ruling in place produces a barrier to patients’ access to routine podiatric treatment because of Medsafe’s determination that Phenol is now a “Medicine”.
Click on the link below to read PodMedMet’s letter, and questions, to the Minister of Health (Also sent to other Ministers covering all NZ Political Party representation).
Feel free to copy the letter to lobby your local MP to assist our fight to protect your Scope of Practice.
