Getting the Measure of PASCOM

Published 10 Dec 2020

A team of podiatrists have recently evaluated PASCOM-10 as a clinical audit tool for MSK podiatry.  There is a paucity of information about the effectiveness of MSK podiatry interventions. Outcome measures used to assess and evaluate services are vast and not yet directly specific to MSK practice. A visual analogue scale (VAS)
and the Manchester-Oxford Foot Questionnaire (MOXFQ) are most frequently used in MSK care and are the main outcomes included in the PASCOM software. The aim of this audit is to review the effectiveness of PASCOM-10 in collating outcome measures of MSK podiatry contacts while also exploring the patient demographics and presentation.  The full paper, published in the November / December edition of POdiatry now can be accessed here
