Shared Care Record

What is a Shared Care Record?

Podiatry

Podiatry is one of the clinical services delivered from within Compass Health. The service aims to develop and provide a patient centred integrated model of care for the prevention and treatment of at risk/high risk foot problems in community and hospital settings. This service also supports the diabetes treatment plan agreed by the patient and their primary/secondary provider.

The podiatry service should:

  • provide quality podiatry services based on established professional standards and codes of practice
  • ensure podiatry services for people in the district are comprehensive, appropriate and accessible
  • reduce the incidence of unplanned hospital admissions and/or amputations for diabetes related complications
  • improve the lower limb status of all people with diabetes with particular emphasis on Māori and Pacific Island people
  • develop the self-management capability of people with diabetes by promoting independence with foot care; and
  • enable a comprehensive understanding of the epidemiology and extent of foot disease in the district.
