Capability Framework For Integrated Diabetic Lower Limb Care: A User’s Guide

The “Capability Framework For Integrated Diabetic Lower Limb Care: A User’s Guide” is a benchmarking tool, relevant to all clinicians in the multidisciplinary foot team, such as clinical support workers, GPs, orthotists, surgeons and tissue viability nurses.

The updated framework Capability Framework For Integrated Diabetic Lower Limb Care: A User’s Guide will be an important tool to facilitate benchmarking of existing skill sets, and to guide the professional development of clinicians.

There are three new dimensions: “Peripheral arterial disease”, “Load distribution, load sharing and axial offloading in an active diabetic foot”, and “Psychology screening and assessment”. There is a self-scoring, interactive element to each dimension so you can record your own capability and record your achievements and goals.
