Bristow, Ivan Robert (2011) The origins and evolution of podiatric dermatology University of Southampton, Faculty of Health Sciences, Doctoral Thesis , 505pp.

Record type: Thesis (Doctoral)


This thesis sets out to demonstrate the significant contribution to the field of podiatric dermatology, through the use of various forms of published documentary evidence, made by the author. In addition to the published papers submitted, a content analysis of British podiatric literature over a period of 21 years has mapped the emergence and development of the specialism of podiatric dermatology within the United Kingdom. This work demonstrates a significant increase in professional interest within this area during this period. This is evidenced through increased reporting of dermatological topics within podiatry journals in terms of related news items, advertisements and editorials. This is accompanied by an increasing number of case studies, peerreviewed papers and continuing professional development articles evident within the literature. The author has presented within this thesis a suite of fifty published articles along with verifiable evidence of professional activities related to the promotion and development of podiatric dermatology. Collectively this evidence represents a significant contribution to the development and evolution of dermatology as a specialist area within podiatry in the United Kingdom over the last fifteen years.
