Healthcare professionals involved in decision-making and patient care around GLP1RAs have been invited to attend a specialist webinar.
‘Foot disease and osteomyelitis in people living with diabetes’ has been designed for specialists working in the field of diabetes and will be led by a panel of leading experts.
The event will take place on Tuesday, April 5, 2022, from 7pm to 8pm.
The Association of British Clinical Diabetologists (ABCD), the Young Diabetologists & Endocrinologists’ Forum (YDEF), and Lilly have partnered to deliver the educational webinar.
Dr Prashanth Vas, Consultant in Diabetes and Diabetes Foot Medicine at King’s College Hospital, is a confirmed speaker at the virtual event.
Alongside being a consultant at the first dedicated multidisciplinary foot clinic in the world, Dr Vas is also a Senior Clinical Lecturer at King’s College London, a visiting professor at the University of Staffordshire, and has been a part of two Quality in Care Diabetes award- winning teams.
Dr Vas’s current research focusses on the lower limb complications of diabetes including the aetiopathogenesis and treatment diabetic foot ulcers, diabetic neuropathy (especially small-fibre neuropathy), and in the validation of new techniques designed for the early detection of neuropathy.
He was also involved in the development of the Ipswich Touch Test, alongside Professor Gerry Rayman. This test is now commonly recognised as a simple reliable method for evaluating loss of protective foot sensation, adopted by Diabetes UK as the ‘Touch the Toes’ test.
