ABMSP CALLS FOR INCREASED AWARENESS OF PSYCHOLOGY OF NON-COMPLIANCE BY DIABETICS

 

 

 

 

The American Board of Multiple Specialties in Podiatry (ABMSP) has issued a call to the podiatric community to more closely examine the psychological factors that influence non-compliance and non-adherence in order to strengthen prevention and treatment of diabetic foot wounds. In addition, the Board is actively developing standards to help podiatrists adopt a "whole-body" approach that will boost patient self-esteem by focusing on a healthy mindset.

Using the pioneering research of medical icon Dr. Paul Brand (1914-2003), ABMSP podiatrists are recognizing their roles as "full body and full mind" advocates for wellness in people with diabetes. "The foot is attached to the rest of the body," said Kenneth B. Rehm, DPM, Diplomate of the American Board of Multiple Specialties in Podiatry, in a statement which is reminiscent of Dr. Brand's frequent advice to podiatrists to "think about the person, not just the foot."
