Every patient should be informed of their risk category and have that risk explained to them in accordance with the Diabetic Foot Risk Stratification and Triage Chart. Every patient should be given verbal and written information regarding their risk status.
It is recommended that all Low risk patients are educated in self management, this can be achieved through individual or group educational programmes. Patients of Moderate, High and Active foot disease will receive a treatment and management plan by a podiatrist and will receive updated education at each visit.
It is hoped that following the appropriate risk categorisation with the subsequent introduction of a treatment/management plan that this can minimize and/or help prevent foot problems.
