DiaSHOE: Raising awareness about the Diabetic Foot Syndrome

The Erasmus+ DiaSHOE project launched in 2020 is now coming to an end. Among other results, the partners have produced three different sets of Digital Education Package respectively targeting Diabetic Foot Control designers, footwear technicians and product managers, health technicians and shoe shop employees and finally patients, their families, informal caregivers as well as school teachers and educators.

All along the project, one of the key objectives of Erasmus+ DiaSHOE was to raise awareness and educate about the Diabetic Foot Syndrome and the complications associated with inappropriate care and control of the diabetic foot. As a result, each of the partners from Portugal, Spain, Czech Republic, Germany, Romania and Poland established different events around diabetes and the well-being of patients suffering from it. All the events gave special attention to the importance of taking care of foot health as well as using appropriate footwear when you are suffering from diabetes. They also gave the consortium the opportunity to exchange on the subject and get direct feedbacks from several experts such has footwear and health technicians, but also diabetic patients.

The last event will be a webinar with a view to reach a larger audience across Europe, organised by the European Footwear Confederation (CEC). It will take place on the 30th of March from 16:00 to 17:30 CET via the platform Microsoft Teams. This event will give rise to a discussion between several experts on the subject and deliver more explanation and results on the project. You can attend the online conference by registering on https://forms.gle/ZJVuzGbjeBZn8Tyh6 by the 29th of March.
