About this Guideline:

The Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario (RNAO) is developing the third edition best practice guideline on Diabetic Foot Complications (working title). Two previous edition BPGs on Reducing Foot Complications for People with Diabetes (2007 Update) and Assessment and Management of Foot Ulcers for People with Diabetes (2013) are being combined and updated.

The purpose of this upcoming third edition guideline is to provide nurses and members of the interprofessional team with evidence-based recommendations on the assessment and management of people at risk of or with an established diagnosis of diabetic foot complications. Broadly, recommendations within this guideline will focus on practice settings including, but not limited to: acute care, long-term care, primary care, home and community care, and rehabilitation.
