Foot wounds -ischaemic, neuro-ischaemic and neuropathic
Time & Location
About the Event
We all agree that in the ideal world all foot wounds are seen by advanced care podiatrists, but we know that sometimes access to these experienced clinicians is difficult to achieve in a timely manner. We aim to bring to you the best practice guidelines around care of these foot wounds. Why some dressing products are considered excellent and why some are definitely contra-indicated in wounds of ischaemic origin.
Whilst we hope the podiatrist visiting your patient does use offloading techniques, we will cover off on these so you also know what is available and the precautions to take with these.
Remember the data on diabetic foot amputations is horrific and sadly we are not winning this battle. Yet it is also well known that most amputations start with a foot ulcer!!! So let’s manage feet well, and reduce these statistics.
