Fibreglass Total Contact Casting, Removable Cast Walkers, and Irremovable Cast Walkers to Treat Diabetic Neuropathic Foot Ulcers

Great news from Health Quality Ontario was released last week.  The Ontario Health Technology Advisory Committee recommends that fibreglass total contact casting, removable cast walkers, and irremovable cast walkers be publicly funded in patients presenting with a neuropathic diabetic plantar foot ulcer.  This is a very important step toward access for all Ontarians to the very best care for diabetic foot ulcers. 

The journey toward this announcement all began with a submission from OntWIG to the Helath Technology Advisory Committee after consultation with YOU the membership!

More information about the recommendations may be found on the HQO website.
