Clubfoot Content Development Project


This content development project created evidence based information on all aspects of managing of the individual with clubfoot. Much of this project was guided by the Africa Clubfoot Training project and guided the curriculum for the Clubfoot MOOC which took place in November 2017 in collaboration with ICRC and GCI.  

Anyone is welcome to join in this project. You will be joining people from all over the world in contributing evidence based articles to create an evidence based reference on management of individuals with Clubfoot.  In return for your efforts you will receive a certificate of completion to help you evidence your learning through your involvement with this project.
