A new continuing education requirement for Podiatric Physicians AND Certified Podiatric X-Ray Assistants in Florida was implemented by the Florida Legislature in 2019. All licensed Podiatric Physicians and Certified Podiatric X-Ray Assistants were required to complete a one-hour board-approved course on Human Trafficking by January 1, 2021. This course is now required for all Podiatric Physicians and Certified Podiatric X-Ray Assistants seeking initial licensure. To find out more about this new requirement, click HERE.
Another part of the Human Trafficking requirement includes posting a sign regarding human trafficking in a conspicuous place accessible to employees by January 1, 2021. The sign must be at least 11 x 15 inches and in at least 32-point type. The sign must contain statutorily required language and be posted in English and Spanish. The Florida Department of Health has also provided Mandarin translations of these signs for use in offices where those languages are spoken. To access PDFs of the required signage, click HERE.
