Recommendation ID

Education and psycho-behavioural interventions for prevention:- What is the role of educational models and psycho-behavioural interventions in prevention of diabetic foot complications?

Any explanatory notes
(if applicable)

Why this is important:- The evidence surrounding the role of educational measures for those at risk of diabetic foot problems was limited and inconclusive. It is proposed that new interventions are developed that target psychological and behavioural factors. The proposed study would monitor and evaluate the rates (and recurrent rates) of foot ulceration, infection and gangrene resulting from diabetes, rates and extent of amputation, rates of hospital admission for foot problems resulting from diabetes,
length of hospital stay, and resource use and cost as a result of applying these interventions.
