Diabetes Week 2017 – DFA guides you through this year’s research in diabetic foot disease

Diabetes Week 2017
Keeping track of what’s out there and finding the time to read it seems a near impossible job at times. So DFA is “guiding you through” the most important scientific & clinical developments in diabetic foot disease between Diabetes Week 2016 and 2017.

The last twelve months have seen various interesting developments, both scientifically and clinically, in the field of diabetic foot disease. In this “DFA Guides you through” document, we describe the most important developments in epidemiology, prevention, footwear and offloading, peripheral artery disease, infection and wound healing interventions. We look forward to further advancements in diabetic foot disease research and treatment in 2017 and 2018 that may contribute to ending avoidable amputations in a generation.

For those who cannot wait until our next yearly overview, register now for the 2017 Diabetic Foot Australia National Conference in September!

After two successful conferences at the Liverpool Hospital in 2013 and 2015, this is the third in the Australian Diabetic Foot Conference series. We are bringing some of the globe’s most renowned researchers and clinicians in the fields of diabetes and foot disease to the Gold Coast, to cover the latest research, from bench-top to bedside. The conference offers unique content for everyone, from people working every day at the coalface of the disease to researchers studying the solutions of the future. Just metres from the beachfront, you’ll enjoy a spectacular scientific and social program. Plenary lectures and workshops reflect our 2017 theme and logo: wound infection, vascular surgery, multi-disciplinary treatment and biomechanics. Current ticket pricing is available until Midnight 03 AUG, choose from a selection of 2 day and 1 day options.
