    Many thanks for this great link. Damn straight talking there. I have printed it out, and it will be given to my students to stimulate thinking and discussion. I wish that I could say that none of the less-ethical behaviour outlined occurs in Podiatry, *sigh*.

    I myself mix up my attire.Sometimes I wear a shirt & tie.Other days I wear turtlenecks or shirts without tie.I always try to act pleasant and professional.I used to work for a character who wore T shirt and jeans.That was not his major problem.His big problem was that he rushed the patients through.His even bigger problem wasthat he overbilled medicare for obscene amounts(1000 dollars and all he did was cut nails!)

    I have just come from a rather entertaining street show of clown doctors. Started by Patch Adams the physicians believe laughter is as much part of bedside manner as the medicines they prescribe. I understand the reasoning perfectly for dressing accordingly for clinical works but believe there is not hard and fast uniformity.

    Just an old hippy a heart .

    Shorts, black socks and sandals do it for me (outside of work though, I tend to dress casually) :D

    I really don't mind what health professionals wear - as long as their apparel is no stranger to the washing machine or dry cleaner. And you can call me by my first name if you like (but I always accord my elders the respect of Mr/Mrs Smith etc until invited to use the first name). What I REALLY can't stand are snake oil salesmen posing as health professionals. Don't rush me, don't bulls**t me, don't condesend or patronise me, and don't assume I can be 'handled'. And just because I am upright and warm, doesn't mean I need orthotic intervention.

    But Gosh I do love sandals and black socks (are they long socks? please tell me they're long socks......) Cold shower time.

    Of course they're long socks. You think I have no taste?

    Yo David

    Don't tell Felicity about the striped long socks you wear as well or the uni might be losing a tutor to BP problms!!
