Diabetes footcare to take centre stage at national conference
Diabetes footcare clinicians who have developed unique processes, innovations, audits or research are invited to share their findings at the English Diabetes Footcare Network’s third virtual national conference taking place next Spring.
Latest research and examples of best practice will be delivered by expert speakers at the EDFN’s online national conference, taking place on Friday, April 21, 2023.
The free conference will cover the hot topics in diabetes footcare and will include case studies and panel discussions.
Ahead of its conference, the EDFN is calling for abstract submissions to feature in the event.
The Network is inviting submissions from anyone who has developed and introduced new practices into their service.
All submissions will be considered and judged by the EDFN committee, with the top two being featured as presentations at the conference. Abstracts will also be featured on the EDFN website following the event.
EDFN Chair Richard Leigh said: “We’ve been very impressed with the submissions we’ve received in previous years, which covered a range of topics, case studies and examples of best practice.
“We’re looking for abstracts that are evidenced with data and that can clearly demonstrate the ultimate aim of improving lower limb services and outcomes for people with diabetes.”
The deadline for abstract submission is 5pm on Friday, March 10 – click here to submit an abstract.
The EDFN national conference is open to any healthcare professionals treating people with foot and lower limb conditions in diabetes.
The event is sponsored by Scholl, which has had no input into the content of the conference.
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.
