Advances in lower limb and foot care study day

Our free advanced study days promote the best practices in skin health and wound healing


The care of people with lower limb and foot conditions remains topical thanks to the work being undertaken by the national wound care strategy programme and campaigns such as Legs Matter. Across the UK there are examples of exciting and innovative practice that is making a huge difference to patient outcomes.

This study day is a step up from our fundamentals of lower limb and foot care session and aims to provide delegates with a better understanding of current research and how to manage/ treat some of the more complex lower limb and foot conditions
