Fit2Walk is very excited to present an interview with Dr. Kristien van Acker. Dr. van Acker is the chair of the International Working Group on the Diabetic Foot and chair of Foot Programs for the International Diabetes Federation. She started the first interdisciplinary diabetic foot clinic in Antwerp in 1989, and was fundamental in setting up an additional 21 diabetic foot clinics across Belgium over 10 years. She is also heavily active in the Step-by-Step program, leading courses around the world to help educate diabetes trainers about delivering care in their home countries.
This video provides additional detail on Dr. van Acker and the many programs which she supports. Along with Dr. Tom, the video also discusses more about diabetic neuropathy and how healthcare professionals are attempting to prevent amputation and ulceration globally.
