Diabetic Foot Care

​WPCN foot care is guided by the Diabetic Foot Care Clinical Pathway(from Alberta Health Services)

If you have diabetes, then our Foot Care Nurse (LPN) can take care of your feet. The Nurse will conduct a total foot health assessment for diabetic patients.

This may include nail trimmings/filings, corn/callus reduction, and management of any fungal or ingrown toenails.

Foot Care services are provided Tuesday and Wednesday

How do I get in to see the Foot Care Nurse?
