Free learning unit updates nurses on diabetic complications


Nursing Times Learning has collaborated with NICE to launch a free online learning unit on managing diabetic foot problems.

The unit was developed to familiarise nurses with the new NICE clinical guideline Diabetic foot problems - inpatient management, published this week. It takes an average of one hour to complete.

Diabetic foot problems are a major cause of amputations, and patients should be admitted to hospital and treated as an emergency. However, their care varies across the NHS.

The new guideline recommends that all NHS trusts develop a care pathway and ensure patients with diabetic foot problems are cared for by a multidisciplinary foot care team.
