Diabetes And The Diabetic Foot Ulcer In The Long-Term Care Setting
Diabetes is one of the most complicated and costly diseases of the 21st century.

This program will discuss diabetes and wound healing in general, and how the foot is affected by the disease. Prevention, assessment and treatment strategies for diabetic foot ulcers will be included in the content.
