English Diabetes Footcare Network announces conference date
The English Diabetes Footcare Network (EFDN) is to hold its first National Conference, organisers have announced.
The online event will take place on Friday, May 21, 2021 between 1pm and 5pm. The aim of the event is to bring together leading footcare experts and Multidisciplinary Foot Teams (MDFT) to share good practice and discuss the latest research from within the field of feet.
The EFDN was founded in 2019 by a group of interested diabetes foot champions, Paul Chadwick, Mike Edmonds, Alistair McInnes, Richard Leigh and Christian Pankhurst, who all wanted to establish a network across England.
The aim of the steering group was to develop an English-wide network to provide a focus for strategic developments, share best practice and advise relevant stakeholders. The network then feeds into the national programme.
The network is currently a coalition of the 12 local Strategic Clinical Networks (SCNs), relevant multidisciplinary health professionals and academics led by podiatrists under the banner of the College of Podiatry.
