    Hello,

    I'm a third year podiatry student preparing my thesis proposal on diabetes and in my research I'm finding difficulty in spotting any study which tries to make a correlation between the knowledge of the diabetic patient on foot care and their actual practices. Most studies of this kind utilise questionnaires that aren't internationally validated (such as the Diabetes Knowledge Test, DKT-24 regarding the knowledge and the Nottingham Assessment of Functional Foot Care, NAFF regarding the behaviour of the patients, among others).

    Are you aware of any study of this sort carried out with pre-validated questionnaires?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.


    Regards,
    R.M.
