Did you also 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.
