Health care professionals with an interest in foot disease in people with diabetes have been invited to submit abstracts ahead of a national conference.

The English Diabetes Footcare Network (EDFN) is holding its second online national conference on Friday, April 29, 2022.

Along with keynote speakers, case studies and panel discussions, the event will also feature abstract presentations.

Event organisers are calling for submissions from anyone who has developed unique foot-related research, new processes, audits or innovations to their service.

All submissions will be considered and judged, with the top three being identified and recognised by the EDFN committee. Abstracts will also be included in a special poster room at the online conference and will be featured on the website following the event.

EDFN Chair Richard Leigh said: “We’re looking for abstracts that demonstrate depth and resourcefulness and are evidenced with data, all with the overarching aim of improving lower limb services and outcomes for people with diabetes.”

There are themes to help you frame your submission, but these are only advisory:

  1. How have you used Peer Review in your organisation to improve service delivery?
  2. Following the Delivering a ‘Net Zero’ National Health Servicereport, what have you achieved in reducing your carbon footprint?
  3. What proactive steps has your organisation taken to mitigate the effects of the pandemic and kickstart the recovery from COVID-19?
  4. Outline any digital initiatives your organisation has developed over the last year.

The deadline for abstract submission is 5pm on Friday, April 1.
