Don’t Put Your Foot in Your Mouth: What You Must Know About Diabetic Footwear (Advanced)

Don’t Put Your Foot in Your Mouth: What you Must Know About Diabetic Footwear will be presented by Dr. Alison J. Garten DPM, CPed, Kaiser Permanente at this year’s Wild on Wounds National Conference September 7-10, 2011.
This is a MUST go to presentation designed to educate the wound care professional on how diabetic shoes in the high-risk patient can greatly reduce the likelihood of ulcerations in their feet. We will together identify who are the high-risk patients through patient examples, discuss the anatomy of the high-risk diabetic and the importance of professionally fitted shoes in this population. We will conclude with specific examples of how specific ulcers could have been prevented. We’ll discuss the Diabetic Therapeutic Shoe Bill guidelines under the Medicare law, and explain how diabetic shoes can be a profitable business for your practice.
