Diabetic Foot Sepsis and Osteomyelitis Survey

Note: This survey is targeted at Vascular Surgeons and General Surgeons with a special interest in Vascular Surgery. It may be of particular interest to rural/remote surgeons.

The diabetic foot disease research team at James Cook University, led by Professor Jon Golledge, is conducting a survey aimed at surgeons involved in the treatment of patients admitted to hospital for the treatment of diabetic foot infection and diabetic foot osteomyelitis in Australia and New Zealand.

This survey seeks to:

  • Investigate the diagnostic and therapeutic treatment options that surgeons undertake for managing diabetic foot infection and diabetic foot osteomyelitis
  • Understand if there exists a consensus or marked variation in how these conditions are managed amongst surgeons
  • Clarify the need for further research including randomised clinical trials on this topic
