Abstract

There are many factors to remember when performing a foot assessment on patients with diabetes. To maximize the value of a foot care program, patients need to understand their role in preserving their feet. This article outlines how to perform a logical foot assessment using a mnemonic tool so all parts of the examination will be included. Further actions to consider and educational points to stress are provided for each part of the assessment.
