Abstract

Providing individualized education to home care patients with diabetes can significantly improve their foot care practices. A nurse researcher from the Intercollegiate College of Nursing at Washington State University conducted a study of 40 home healthcare patients with Type 2 diabetes and found that an individualized educational intervention led to improved foot care knowledge, self-care practices, and confidence performing foot related self-care.
