The Fort Frances Family Health Team provides foot care service for diabetic patients, elderly, and individuals who are unable to provide their own foot care. The foot care program is delivered by the Registered Practical Nurses at the Family Health Team. The role of our nurses is to provide foot care and health teaching to our patients to prevent foot problems and serious complications, through early detection. Our foot care program is designed to provide patients with the best practices, knowledge and information required to take responsibility for the health and well-being of their feet. Access to Diabetic Footcare is by self or provider referral. All non-diabetic Footcare requires a provider referral.

- Assessment of feet and nails
