Indigenous diabetic foot program

 

Overview

The Indigenous diabetic foot program (IDFP) aims to provide quality, positive, evidence-based educational resources and workshops for Indigenous people and those who care for them.

The educational tools are designed for use by Indigenous people with diabetes, Indigenous Health Workers and other health professionals, to enable them to become more actively involved with the management of the diabetic foot. With better understanding of the management and early identification of foot conditions, the expectation is to prevent foot ulceration and amputation.

IDFP workshops are designed specifically for people who work with Indigenous clients, and can be tailored to suit the audience. For more information on the workshops see links below.
