Improving Diabetic Footcare Faculty (DIFF Model)


The Improving Diabetic Footcare Faculty (IDFF) was formed following the 2012 publication of high South West diabetic amputation rates. A voluntary, podiatry-led network of healthcare professionals (HCPs), IDFF focuses on structured education and service development. The faculty meets outside working hours to develop free, innovative education packages, which help to standardise education provision for HCPs and patients, encouraging timely referrals and a multidisciplinary approach. The IDFF model has now been replicated by other HCPs within the South West.
