GP survey: Do you treat patients with diabetic foot ulcers?

The Research Collaborative Australia Group (RCAG) is seeking your input to better understand the management and care of diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) in primary care.

Share your awareness, perception and management of DFUs via  RCAG's online survey. The survey will take between 20-30 minutes to complete.

The survey aims to get increase understanding of current practice in managing DFUs and what drives that practice. RCAG can then develop tools to help GPs in their decision-making around the prevention of DFUs and treatment of patients who develop DFUs.

These tools would be made widely available to GPs across Australia and would be tailored to meet multiple cultural and environmental considerations.

Complete the survey via the Vista Health website using the password – DFUSurvey2020.
