Lower Limb Preservation in Diabetes
Key Course Facts
The sheer complexity of diabetic disease presents a need for integrated care provision at all stages of the patient’s journey; in particular for those who are elderly and infirm, those who have had a longer duration of diabetes and those with multiple morbidities and medications. Integrated care is pivotal as it is provided by multiple groups of professionals, often with conflicting priorities which can lead to fragmentation of care, poorer outcomes, and complications when not working as part of a multidisciplinary care team.
You will have the opportunity to develop evidence-based theoretical concepts of limb preservation transferable to professional practice, informed by a critical knowledge and understanding of integrative care requirements for those patients at-risk due to diabetes.
The programme is designed for, but not limited to, specialist podiatrists, nurses, medical, surgical and healthcare professionals, and is targeted at those currently working in or with aspirations to gain further education and/or employment in the field of diabetes and limb preservation.
