Diabetic foot problems - inpatient management (CG119)
Fast, easy summary view of NICE guidance on 'diabetes'
Specific, concise statements that act as markers of high-quality, cost-effective patient care
This short clinical guideline offers evidence-based advice on the inpatient care of people with diabetic foot problems from hospital admission onwards. It is the full guideline and contains all the recommendations, details of how they were developed, and reviews of the evidence they were based on.
The care pathway in the full guideline was amended (January 2012) to reflect recommendation 1.2.9 more clearly. We have also amended this in the NICE pathway as well as the quick reference guide.
This guidance has been incorporated into the following NICE Pathways, along with other related guidance and products.
