Can you avert a potential disaster? Managing the Foot in Diabetes

NEW With diabetes mellitus consuming 10% of the entire NHS budget for England and Wales and a significant portion of that amount (some £300m) being spent on managing avoidable foot-related complications, there is a considerable focus on developing tools and strategies to minimise both the individual and financial cost of this devastating disease. The role, therefore, that podiatrists and foot health professionals play in the reduction of morbidity and mortality of the disease as well as improving patients’ quality of life cannot be overstated. Against this backdrop this CPD will discuss diabetes mellitus from pathophysiology through to complications and implications for practitioners.
