The APM would like to formaly announce that it is now officially affiliated with the Malta Federation of Professional Associations (MFPA). This is a crucial development and goes hand in hand with APMs agenda to expand inter-professional communication with other stakeholders in the health field and with other non-health related professions. At this point we would like to thank the 2012 committee for its work in initiating this process and the current committee for completing our application and the necessary documentation for affiliation. For more information on MFPA please visit the official website: http://www.mfpa.org.mt/about
The APM shall now be focusing its efforts in order to be recognised as a professional association by the public health authorities according to Schedule IV of the Health Care Act of the Laws of Malta. This will put the APM in a solid position to recommend specialist posts in the field of Podiatry and be an advisory body to the government with respect to the profession and its scope of practice in Malta.
It is also the intention of the APM committee to convene its members for a meeting in order to discuss a 'way forward' with respect to future developments, expansion of practice, discuss current situations, propose ideas and solutions for problems faced in view of a meeting the committee plans to hold with the Minister of Health in the upcoming months.
