Excellent delegate feedback Thank you for making 2019 event a success!2019 Symposium: 220 registrants worldwide!
The prevalence of diabetic foot disease is increasing with rising diabetes rates worldwide. At the same time, the treatment options have significantly advanced, with limb preservation now becoming the gold standard aim.
We are pleased to announce that the 2021 King’s Charcot Foot Reconstruction Symposium will be a joint event with the 7th Annual Conference of International Association of Diabetic Foot Surgeons. This will be a hybrid event, with face-to-face participation of UK clinicians and remote joining of overseas delegates.
The 2021 symposium will focus on giving you an update on the emerging as well as proven concepts in diabetic foot surgical management, with an emphasis on the primary prevention and surgical reconstruction of the diabetic foot. The comprehensive programme will provide the practitioners with an evidence-based approach to the podiatric, medical and surgical management of the diabetic foot. Internationally eminent speakers will stimulate discussions that will act as a forum for conversations on the current variations in successful treatment methodologies and stimulate a lively debate on the modern foot preservation and salvage strategies.
The programme is aimed at orthopaedic surgeons, vascular surgeons, plastic surgeons, diabetologists, general physicians, podiatrists, diabetes specialist nurses, CCG clinical leads, general practitioners and all members of diabetes foot networks or diabetes clinical networks.
The Multidisciplinary and Surgical Vascular Management of the Diabetic Foot symposium was awarded 12 and the cadaver workshop 6 CPD points by the Royal College of Surgeons for 2019 and we expect similar type of accreditation this year too.
