Nursing Interventions For The Prevention Of Foot Ulcers In Patients With Diabetes: An Integrative Review

Objective:  to verify the available evidence on nurses’ interventions to prevent ulcers in patients with diabetic foot.

Method: integrative review held in the databases BDENF, LILACS, IBECS, CINAHL, PubMed and in the virtual library SCIELO without time restriction.

Results: the authors identified 15 articles that met the study criteria. Nursing interventions for the prevention of diabetic foot were performed both individually and on collective basis, or in combination. The vast majority of interventions were within institutional programs aimed at health promotion.

Conclusion: the evidence points to health education as a tool in the prevention of diabetic foot and consequent amputation of the lower extremities, promoting awareness for development and adoption of skills for self-care and improved lifestyle.
