Nurse Network: Unhappy Feet – How to Identify & Respond to the High Risk Foot

In Australia and internationally, high risk foot problems are most commonly associated with diabetes. These are a major source of suffering and expense for patients and a considerable financial burden on the health system.

Primary health care nurses are invited to attend this free interactive workshop focused on identifying and responding to diabetes related foot complications.

The format of the workshop will include a mix of:

  • Presentations on topics including the diabetic foot, the role of the primary health nurse, and an overview of the Diabetes High Risk Foot Service.
  • Learning stations to develop skills in conducting a diabetic foot assessment, accessing Diabetes HealthPathways, and using the latest diabetes medication devices.

By attending this workshop, participants will increase their confidence, knowledge and skills to enable them to:

  • List the reasons clinicians examine the feet of people with diabetes.
  • Perform a basic foot examination on a person with diabetes.
  • Identify an ‘at risk’ foot in a person with diabetes.
  • Describe the referral pathway for people at risk of foot complications.
  • Identify resources available locally and nationally for people with diabetes.
  • Describe new developments in diabetes medication devices.
