High Risk Foot Simulation Workshop

Background

Podiatry access is limited in rural and remote locations, making health workers and nurses integral in early detection and timely referral to prevent complications and possible amputations. Through WACRH's research arm, work has been progressed on the development of an on-line tool with integrated risk rating. The training is based around the use of this development.

Workshop objectives

  • To raise skill in the assessment of the high risk foot
  • To build capacity and structure for staff to follow to achieve timely and appropriate intervention and referral
  • To raise skill in identifying foot deformities, assessing arterial supply and foot sensation
  • How to perform an electronic Diabetes Foot Check (you tick the boxes and the computer does the rest!)

The format

Each workshop runs for 2 hours. It is interactive, using simulation scenarios for participants to experience the reality of foot assessment and the use of the newly developed assessment form with risk calculator.
