Diabetes UK and Great Foundations: Addressing the issues in foot care which lead to people with diabetes developing foot conditions

  Wednesday, 01 Dec 2021 | Funding Deadline

Diabetes UK and Great Foundations are inviting proposals addressing the issues which lead to people with diabetes developing ulcers or other diabetes-related foot conditions and these then progressing further.

Preventing foot ulcers, amputations and other severe foot complications in people with diabetes is a key priority for the Diabetes Research Steering Group. There is a clear need for innovative approaches to do this, but these need to consider the findings of previous studies and address factors in foot care which may have previously not been subject to research. These include social factors which present significant barriers to care or treatment, the difficulty people with neuropathy have in detecting and adapting to foot conditions and the need for effective and rapid referrals for foot care when it is needed.

 

Deadline for proposals: 01 December 2021
