Designed to empower members with knowledge, skills and confidence to maintain healthy diabetic feet.
Wounds Canada has created this private Facebook Group as an interactive resource for the Diabetes, Healthy Feet and You Program to help find more ways to educate and support people living with diabetes to prevent foot ulcers.
People living with diabetes are at increased risk for foot ulcers, which can be a severe and costly complication that often leads to infection, amputation and poor quality of life. Every 30 seconds, someone loses a limb because of diabetic foot ulcers. This Facebook group offers an opportunity for you to learn about foot care, risk factors and actions you can take to prevent foot ulcers. The group uses some of the educational material and resources from the Diabetes, Healthy Feet and You Program developed by Wounds Canada.
Members will have the opportunity to share their stories, ideas, personal experiences and advice. The goal is to learn from and support each other. The group activities are designed to empower members with knowledge, skills and confidence to maintain healthy diabetic feet.
Join the group by visiting your home page and clicking on the Group Icon in the upper Facebook menu bar. In the Group search bar, enter Diabetes, Healthy Feet and You Facebook Group and press enter. This will take you to the Group page, where you will have to answer some easy questions to be admitted into this private group. We look forward to your participation!
