Telemedicine: New Horizon in Management of Diabetic Foot Ulcer in Rural/Remote Australia

Indicative Funding
$465,514 over 4 years
Summary
Diabetic Foot Ulcer (DFU) is a serious complication causing >80% of diabetic lower limb amputations. Compared to Australian major cities, rural/remote areas experience two to three times higher rate of hospitalisation and limb amputation. A program that effectively manages foot ulcers and reduces hospital admissions could substantially reduce the cost of care in diabetes. Supervised care of trained rural nurses with the help of information technology may help solve the scarcity of diabetes would care specialists in the underserved communities. This proposal seeks to assess clinical and economic impact of telemedicine in the management of foot ulcers in rural/remote Australia.
