How we are helping
We bring together some of the globe’s most renowned researchers and clinicians in the fields of diabetes and diabetic foot disease to cover the latest research, from bench-top to bedside. From our conference to our 'What's New in DFU' events, we focus on the latest research, evidence-based practice and new technologies.
Published in the Journal of Foot and Ankle Research, the 2018 Australian Guidelines on footwear for people with diabetes contains 10 key recommendations to guide health professionals in selecting the most appropriate footwear to meet the specific foot risk needs of an individual with diabetes.
New research on diabetic foot disease is published on an almost daily basis. Each month we release latest news and research to provide practical clinical summaries of the latest evidence on how to assess particular conditions according to the world’s leading authorities.
The “Australian diabetes-related foot disease strategy 2018-2022” is the first step towards ending avoidable generations within a generation. This strategy was written by Diabetic Foot Australia with input from various national and state peak bodies, interdisciplinary foot disease services and individual experts from the Australian DFD community.
Diabetic Foot Australia has established the Australian Research Repository to showcase published Australian research on diabetic foot disease. Each entry in the repository must focus on diabetic foot disease, be peer reviewed and have one author with an Australian affiliation.
For people with diabetes, feet are often over-looked as the management of other aspects of diabetes takes higher priority. With over 50,000 Australians living with diabetic foot disease every day, Diabetic Foot Australia has developed the handy Daily Foot Checklist for people with diabetes to incorporate into their daily lives.
