Is this study day for you?
This study day is suitable for all Primary Care Professionals who are currently working with people who have diabetes and who would like to update their knowledge on diabetes.

What is it about?
This study day is delivered by practising Primary Care clinicians who have a track record of successful delivery of diabetes care and education. Their informal approach offers delegates the opportunity to ask those tricky questions and receive practical, realistic answers.

Below is an example outline however the content will reflect what is appropriate at the time of delivery. Local pathways or initiatives can be included into the study day please mention when commissioning the event.

What is it about?
Diabetes is the most common cause of non-traumatic limb amputations and is responsible for more than 100 amputations a week. There is a recognised regional variation in clinical practice in preventing and managing diabetic foot problems across the NHS and amputation rates still vary up to fourfold in the UK (NICE NG19, 2015). We will go back to basics and look at the complications of the diabetic foot including neuropathy, limb ischaemia, ulceration, callus, infection, deformity, gangrene and charcot arthropathy.

You will be given the training to assess the risk status of developing a diabetic foot problem and know when and how to assess the risk and classify it correctly.

So in our usual style this day is relaxed and interactive using demonstrations, stories but most importantly it is focused on what people working in general practice need to know and then do, about diabetic feet.
