I’m Richie a 3rd year Pod student at Brighton (long time lurker first time poster here). I could do with a bit of help to be honest. I have to write a lit review based on the foot health knowledge of the older population. So I’m looking for stuff based on education programmes, any thing that shows a deficit in understanding of foot health in the older population, links between self-efficacy and improved foot health. Evidence of improved education/education programmes leads to better foot health. I have plenty of papers regarding foot pathology in older people. So if any of you can point me in the right direction that would be fantastic.
Thanks for reading and I wish you all a happy new years in advance.
Perhaps check some of the papers in the diabetes literature that have measured foot care knowledge and practices (sorry do not have them handy) - I pretty sure there is next to nothing on the general older population.
