The Association of Alberta Podiatric Surgeons (AAPS) was founded in 2015 to increase awareness around the work of Podiatric Surgeons, establish stronger connections with the community at large, and create opportunities to collaborate with family physicians, specialists and health care institutions in Alberta.
The overall objective of AAPS is to increase the quality of care Albertans receive through:
- Promoting best practices in foot and ankle care
- Providing public education around foot and ankle conditions, wound care and limb preservation
- Supporting professional growth and development of Podiatric Surgeons in Alberta by serving as a means for professional fellowship
- Partnering with family physicians, specialists and health care institutions in Alberta
We take a forward thinking approach to quality improvement. Through identifying and taking into consideration the many factors that contribute to the quality of care Albertans receive we have established a holistic approach to quality improvement that focuses on professional growth, public education and collaboration within the health care system.
