This workshop will teach participants how to efficiently screen persons with diabetes for the major risk factors for diabetic foot ulcers. Participants will lean how to provide effective interventions in the office setting to prevent foot ulcer and subsequent amputation. Included in the workshop are an annotated reference list, a diabetes foot care patient questionnaire, forms to record the foot examination, education tools for office staff and patients, instructions for use of the 10-gram monofilament and 128-Hz tuning fork, and resources to obtain 10-g monofilaments.
