About the Diabetic Foot Screening - Interactive Assessment programme

The  assessment will take approximately 30 minutes to complete and was developed to provide an interactive online assessment tool. A complementary elearning programme is also available.

The target group of healthcare professionals includes Primary Care practice nurses and healthcare assistants. The programme provides a comprehensive assessment tool for all healthcare professionals who care for people with diabetes.

Given the variation in diabetes footcare across the country, the elearning programme will contribute to reducing the variation in amputation rates and improve practice in screening and assessment. This will lead to prompt and appropriate referral to the diabetes specialist foot services resulting in reduced length of hospital stay and amputation rates.

The assessment was developed in partnership between Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) and Sussex and East Surrey Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP). The tool is also supported by the South East Clinical Network and The British Association of Prosthetists and Orthotists (BAPO). It will be rolled out as part of a National Diabetes Treatment and Care Programme across the Sussex and East Surrey STP and beyond.
