Event description
This free interactive workshop focused on the ‘high risk’ foot and strategies to prevent associated complications in the diabetic foot.

About this Event

Overview

In Australia and internationally, ‘high risk’ foot complications are most commonly associated with diabetes. These complications are a major source of suffering and expense for patients and a considerable financial burden on the health system. The average life expectancy of a diabetic patient following a foot amputation is 2 years.

General practitioners, primary health nurses and allied health professionals are invited to attend this free interactive workshop focused on the ‘high risk’ foot and strategies to prevent associated complications.

The format of the workshop will include a mix of:

  • Presentations including an overview of the High Risk Foot Service and local referral pathways available in the management of the ‘high risk’ foot.
  • Learning stations to develop skills in conducting a foot assessment and advances in medical devices and education in the management of diabetes.
