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.
When can I see the Foot Care Nurse?
Foot Care services are provided Tuesday and Wednesday from as early as 8:00 until 2:15.
How do I get in to see the Foot Care Nurse?
Visits are by appointment only and require a Wetaskiwin PCN Physician or CDM healthcare professional referral. Talk to your Doctor or health care professional today about your foot care. No self-referrals.
