Sarah P. Smith, Certified Diabetes Educator, Atlantic QIN-SC

This video highlights the need for primary healthcare practitioners to conduct foot exams for patients with diabetes and demonstrates three components that should be included in every foot exam. The recommendations outlined in the video are based on the 2017 Standards of Medical Care in Diabetes, which are revised annually by the Professional Practice Committee of the American Diabetes Association, and which form the basis for the CMS Quality Payment Program’s Diabetes Foot Exam Measure.
