The management of foot disorders in diabetes requires the expertise of a wide range of specialists, including physicians, surgeons, chiropodists and nurses in addition to diabetologists. This book attempts to define the minimum requirements for a diabetic foot service. For example, how many chiropody sessions are needed per week in a given health region? What facilitites are required, and what equipment? Who should teach patients how to look after their feet, and how much time should be devoted to this? How can patients at risk be identified? How often should patients be screened for evidence of neuropathy or peripheral vascular disease? What would be the costs of a comprehensive foot service, and would the results justify the expense? The book also provides an up-to-date review of knowledge of the causation of diabetic foot disease. It constitutes a comprehensive textbook of modern diabetic foot care including pathogenesis and all aspects of investigation and management. Its multidisciplinary authorship and practical approach will make it essential reading for all involved in the care, management and education of patients with diabetes.
