Pisa International Diabetic Foot Webinar Series

June 2021 - September 2021

Following our recent experience during pandemic lockdown, during which we delivered three well attended webinars on chronic oedema, total contact casting and osteomyeltis, respectively, we now move to a webinar series, covering other interesting aspects of the Diabetic Foot Syndrome (DFS).
In the spirit of the courses we aim not only to focus on some topics peculiar to DFS, but also to introduce new perspectives on this still undervalued pathology and bring new arguments for a discussion on how to frame and manage what is becoming one of the most prevalent and complex diabetes-related clinical syndromes.
This is why we organized the 90-minute webinars in a way that 30 minutes would be dedicated in the end for discussion. We hope that this formula will help attendees to actively take part in the discussion that we foresee as “alive and kicking”.

All webinars are available for free on-demand.
