A podiatry perspective – Optimal emollient treatment & prevention of diabetic foot complications

A UK steering group met in January 2020 to review the current landscape of emollient use in the treatment and prevention of diabetic foot complications.

The group developed 34 consensus statements in total, aligned to seven key themes which were identified as part of the review. Informed by the consensus, this expert group created a set of 10 key recommendations to support the optimal use of urea-based emollients in diabetes foot care.

This webinar explores what the key recommendations are that the group identified and what the potential implications of this are on local clinical practice:

  • Understanding the burden of foot ulcers
  • Forming the consensus statements
  • Overview of results
  • Steering group recommendations
  • Implications on local clinical practice
