The final webcast session of the four-part Interprofessional Series on 'Diabetes Education and Management in an Aboriginal community' will explores evidence-based approaches and practical strategies to identify diabetes-related foot pathology in the community. This session supports the use of culturally-safe foot care to improve engagement with preventative foot care services.

Join our guest presenters below to learn more about health-related outcomes in Aboriginal patients with diabetes-related foot disease and discuss ways to implement screening measures in these communities. Topics covered in this session include:

  • Diabetes-related foot disease - risk factors, foot screening, diagnosis, management and referral pathways.
  • The ‘Healthy Deadly Feet Project’ - a leading better value care initiative in high risk foot disease.
  • Exploring domains of care from Aboriginal Health Workers & Aboriginal Health Practitioners, Allied Health Assistants and Podiatrists
  • Highlighting the Aboriginal Health Practitioner’s role in the approach to community engagement in the diagnostic pathway, care, support and options.
