Preventive care and treatment of conditions of the foot for older adult populations are important aspects of geriatric care. Primary and chronic conditions of the foot along with complications imposed by chronic diseases, such as diabetes and peripheral vascular disease, present a challenge for all geriatric professionals. Prevention, early detection, appropriate treatment and follow up are essential in the case of older adults. From the perspective of podiatry, participants will learn how to identify conditions of the foot, treatment options, and ongoing care for problems common to care for the older adult foot.
