Diabetes-related foot disease (DFD) is a leading cause of morbidity, mortality and healthcare cost burdens in Australia. Studies show these burdens can be considerably reduced when implementing guideline-based DFD care. However, the most recent Australian DFD guideline was published in 2010 and outdated.
In 2020, an expert multi-disciplinary Guideline Working Group was appointed by Diabetes Feet Australia to develop a best practice plan to adapt suitable international guidelines into the Australian context to become the new Australian DFD guidelines.
Dr Peter Lazzarini, co-chair of the Guideline Working Group and chair of the Offloading Chapter, will present the 2021 Australian evidence-based DFD guidelines, which have now been systematically developed and released for the first time in a decade. Covering six guidelines, they should serve as multidisciplinary best practice standards of care for the provision of DFD care within Australia.
