Consistent approach needed to reduce variation in footcare for people with diabetes.
Respondents working in diabetes-related footcare can give their thoughts on staff skills and knowledge, infrastructure, processes and patients, with multidisciplinary footcare teams (MDFTs) also able to comment on inpatient and outpatient services.
There are two peer review questionnaires available – one for foot protection teams (community/primary care foot services), and one for MDFTs (secondary care services).
Consultant Podiatrist Richard Leigh, EDFN chair, said: “We’re asking people to be as honest as possible in their answers so that the Peer Review can be used positively to make changes and improvements where needed, and help to shape a consistent, high-quality approach to footcare.”
The questions are available to download from the EDFN website so that information can be sourced prior to starting the online data collection and discussed among foot protection services and multidisciplinary footcare teams.
The EDFN was set up, with support from the Royal College of Podiatry, to share best practice and improve consistency of care across the country.
