First up in the Talking Feet series is EDFN committee member Dr Paul Chadwick, a Consultant Podiatrist and Clinical Director at the Royal College of Podiatry. The main focus of Dr Chadwick’s podcast is offloading, which he describes as “the Cinderella of diabetic foot disease management – it’s the thing that often gets missed out in terms of the management of diabetic foot.” He talks about the importance of improving training and access to total contact casts and non-removable knee-high walking devices, and the barriers which prevent vital early offloading.
