Mr Kearns was involved in a GP Speed Learning Event in Bons Secours Hospital Galway on the 24th of March, 2016. 60 GPs from the Galway, Mayo and Roscommon attended the event to listen to specialist talks given by our experts. Mr Kearns gave four 20 minute presentations about common foot problems seen in Foot and Ankle surgery and some nuggets of information that would be helpful for their own practice.
Mr Kearns was joined on the night by Mr John McCabe – Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, Mr Richie Comer – Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon, Dr Mary P. Fitzgerald – Consultant Gynaecologist and Dr Yvonne Smyth – Consultant Cardiologist.
The Speed Learning nights are a group wide initiative and Mr Kearns’ participation is an example of his willingness to share his expertise and manage foot pathologies correctly.
