    Hi,
    I am involved in a discussion surrounding outcome measurement tools and am looking for a tool specific to diabetic foot ulcerations. There are a number of tools that are used to monitor the progression of pressure ulcerations and/or acute wounds (PUSH, PSST, SWHT, Sessing Scale). Is anyone aware of a tool specifically used to evaluate the progression of diabetic foot ulcers?

    Thanks in advance,
    Ruth

    Ruth the tool that is generally used to measure progress is measurement. eg wound area or volume, looking at % reduction in wound size per week
