NATIONAL WORKING GROUPS


To achieve the main objective of the Nordic Diabetic Foot Task Force, National Working Groups will be formed in each of the Nordic countries. The working groups are expected to initiate and support various activities at the national level highlighting the gap between the implementation of recommended guidelines and actual clinical practice.

 

The working groups will be able to independently identify and acquire public funding for local projects. The steering committee will support the working groups by assisting with project development and providing feedback funding proposals.

 

The working groups will be composed of experts with clinical expertise in orthopaedic surgery, cardiovascular surgery, and endocrinology and the diabetology subspecialty, as well as representatives of national wound-care and podiatrist organisations.

 

The national groups can be reached through the national members of the steering committee.
