Agenda revealed for EDFN National Conference 2024

Preventing ‘foot attack’, foot reconstruction, and building a holistic workforce are just some of the hot topics being covered at the upcoming EDFN National Conference.

The agenda has been revealed for the free, online event on Friday, April 26, which is open to any healthcare professional working in foot or lower limb care.

Delegates will hear the latest best practice and research as part of the drive to improve outcomes in diabetes footcare and reduce amputation rates.

Titled ‘A holistic workforce for holistic care’, the conference will cover topics including:

  • Workforce upskilling for holistic care
  • The role of the Vascular Podiatrist
  • Plastic surgery – its role in foot reconstruction
  • Foot Protection Services – how can they best prevent ‘foot attack’?
  • Diabetes-related major lower limb amputation incidence is strongly related to diabetic foot service provision
  • Headlines from the EDFN Peer Review and audit of podiatry services
  • Who, What, Where and When – What does a holistic ‘threatened limb’ care workforce look like?

Announcing the agenda, the EDFN’s Chair Richard Leigh, Consultant Podiatrist at Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust, said: “We’re looking forward to our upcoming conference, which will provide delegates with an engaging, thought-provoking and educational experience – all in the space of an afternoon.

 “The topics encompass a range of disciplines, reflecting the holistic approach that we think is needed to deliver the very best care for our patients.

“Viewing figures from past events show this conference is a popular one, so we’d encourage anyone working in the field of foot and lower limb care to sign up to hear the latest thinking and approaches that have a very real impact on patients.”
