To help taking care of patients with diabetic foot ulcers, the Urgo Foundation joins forces with local experts to implement a new research project.

The Foundation’s objectives with this project

As a three-year project, it has been delayed due to COVID consequences.

With this research project, the Urgo Foundation is aiming at :

Reducing patient transfers across vast distances thanks to a better access to high-risk foot services.

Reduce health expenditure and to improve the knowledge and skill amongst health professionals of this region.

How ? By determining the therapeutic and cost benefits when the IWGDF (International Working Group of Diabetic Foot) guidelines are translated into clinical practice in the management of patients with diabetic foot ulcers in a remote Western Australia setting.

Every four years, the IWGDF produces international, multidisciplinary, evidence-based Guidance documents to share with healthcare professionals all over the world about the prevention and management of diabetic foot disease.

In this research project, an observational cohort study will be conducted, and the results are anticipated to inform the implementation of a larger multi-site study in remote areas of Australia.

The Urgo Foundation has always been close to patients and caregivers.

This project includes the education of healthcare professionals and aboriginal healthcare workers, with prevention and management of Diabetic Foot Ulcers to pass on good care practices. On the other hand, telehealth consultation for patients with Diabetic Foots are organized to help them.
