Diabetic Foot Screening:
Diabetic Foot Screening Interactive Assessment now live – A new e-learning tool aims to improve practices in footcare for patients with diabetes.
The Diabetic Foot Screening Interactive Assessment has been designed to be used by health and social care professionals who care for people with diabetes and who already have a knowledge of the procedures and skills involved. A complementary e-learning programme is now available.
Given the variation in diabetes footcare across the country, the assessment tool aims to improve screening practices and increase prompt and appropriate referrals to the diabetes specialist foot services.
The assessment will take approximately 30 minutes to complete and was developed in partnership between Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) and Sussex and East Surrey Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP). The tool is also supported by the South East Clinical Network, the College of Podiatry and The British Association of Prosthetists and Orthotists (BAPO). It will be rolled out as part of a National Diabetes Treatment and Care Programme across the Sussex and East Surrey STP and beyond.
For more information about the e-learning assessment and for details of how to access it visit: https://www.e-lfh.org.uk/programmes/diabetic-foot-screening-interactive-assessment/
The e-learning assessment is available via the e-LfH Hub and the Electronic Staff Record (ESR).
An AICC link is also now available. If you want to link to the assessment then you’ll find the details on the AICC report (https://portal.e-lfh.org.uk/home/aiccreport).
