We would like to thank Robin Seabrook of the National Commission on
Orthotic and Prosthetic Education for bringing the problems
associated with our recent article on the proposed pedorthic
education standards to our attention and for working with us over the
last week and a half to correct inaccuracies and present NCOPE’s
perspective on the issue.
We pride ourselves on adhering to the highest standards in accuracy,
and we apologize for any confusion or upset our article may have
caused. We would like to note that The O&P EDGE did not approach this
article without seeking comment from NCOPE. In the end, we published
the article with the comments we had received to date, and those
comments were presented accurately.
To read the revised article, visit www.oandp.com/articles/
2010-11_02.asp. The O&P EDGE will provide updates about the evolving
pedorthic education standards as they become available.
