The Nordic Diabetic Foot Task Force is a network bringing together national and international

health-care clinicians with multidisciplinary backgrounds with the aim to promote the systematic

implementation of National clinical guidelines for diabetic foot care in the Nordic countries.

Nordic countries share some of the basic characteristics in the way they are governing and

delivering welfare services to its citizens. This is often referred to as the Nordic welfare model.

But despite governing by the same overall principles and policy recommendations, the rather

large degree of decentralization means that guidelines and recommendations are often

implemented in fragmented and differentiated ways locally.

With regards to diabetic foot care, this has consequences for the patients’ equal access to

high quality diabetic foot care. Despite national governments launching guidelines and setting

focus on the need to increase the attention to the quality of care being provided, examples of

regions that have implemented the recommended best practice are still few.

Kind regards

On behalf of the Nordic Diabetic Foot Task Force
