Wanda Partrick, a graduate of Centennial College as a Licenced Practical Nurse, has been working in foot care in the community for over 15 years. She has had extensive training in Basic, Advanced and Diabetic foot care. She believes prevention is the key to a high level of mobility and decreased pain.
She uses her knowledge and experience to provide assessment, nursing diagnosis, developing an individualized plan of care in the treatment of common foot conditions such as : corns and calluses, diabetic foot care, fungal skin and nail infections, hammertoes, ingrown toenails, plantar warts and Ram's horn nails. Wanda then evaluates response to treatment in the achievement of the Client's goals. She has the expertise and knowledge to use evidence based, best practice guidelines and established infection control protocols to achieve the highest quality of care.
Wanda enjoys staying active with her fur-babies, hiking Algonquin, and Killarney provincial parks every summer. She attends foot care conferences every year to update her knowledge of the newest techniques and technology.
Wanda is passionate about her community wellness and has been working together with other FCN to start “Project Street Feet” in the Durham region. This project has been successful in other regions and gives free foot care treatment to citizens living on the street.
