May 21 - Nurses in specialty care: Foot care services: As mentioned in this report, we have received a number of emails from nurses who provide foot care services in a variety of settings (home care, retirement homes, long-term care, community clinics, etc.) who are seeking information about the opening of services and how they will be able to resume their practice safely. Many of these nurses are in independent practice, while others work in community funded programs. To address the needs expressed by the nurses in this specialty area of practice, members of the IABPG and policy teams will be hosting a webinar on Thursday May 28th at 3:30 - 4:30 pm EDT. This webinar is open to any foot care nurses and others who would like to join us for dialogue and discussion. If you are interested and available to attend, please write to <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
May 19 - Nurses providing foot care services: Several colleagues who work in independent practice providing foot care to persons with diabetes have written with a variety of important questions. Please know that we will coordinate a webinar in the next few days to discuss your needs and provide you with the necessary support.
