Did you know that diabetes-related foot ulcers are reported as the leading cause of amputation in Australia? But did you also know that 80% of diabetes-related amputations could be prevented by following best evidence-based treatments.

Here at DFA, one of the ways we’re tackling that statistic is by developing new national diabetes-related foot disease guidelines that reflect the most up-to-date evidence to guide standards of health care provision in Australia. We’re also developing a clinical toolkit with diabetes-related foot recommendation fact sheets and easy-to-use clinical pathways. But to help us achieve this, we need your valuable thoughts and experience.

We're looking for a passionate consumer representative who lives with diabetes, and want to help make a difference by sharing their personal experience and expertise with diabetes-related foot disease and foot health. Sound interesting to you...or someone you know? Click on the link below to learn more! Applications close on Tuesday 19th May and we'd love to hear from you.

Did you know that every two hours someone in Australia will undergo an amputation as a result of diabetes-related foot disease? Did you also know that diabetes-related foot disease receives less than 0.2% of the total diabetes research funded in Australia?

Here at DFA, one of the ways we’re tackling this problem is to focus on the important role research plays. And how we can improve future national research opportunities by building the “Australian Research Agenda for diabetes-related foot disease”. But to build it, we need your valuable thoughts and ideas.
