Introduction 

This interactive session, is aimed at the GPN and the experienced HCA (whose job role and scope includes Leg Assessment/ Doppler). The content includes assessment of the patient with a leg condition/ulcer and those at risk of ulceration. We will also look at the elements and importance of that holistic assessment plus early risk recognition of signs and symptoms, followed by interactive clinical skills session to  undertaking a Doppler test. NB: Please have available a Doppler kit/sphyg, gel and cuff for the practical session.

Aims

The session will cover:

  • Principles, rationales and core elements of assessing legs and common conditions.
  • Introducing the updated national plan for best practice (NWCSP)
  • Recognising atypical ulceration
  • Practical demonstration of handheld Doppler test
  • Discussion of handheld v automated Doppler (NICE Guidelines, 2023)
  • How to translate the Assessment/Doppler into appropriate care planning
  • The importance & eligibility of compression post Assessment (note-only includes compression in relation to Doppler. (see separate compression session)
  • Signposting of when and who to refer
  • Pathway to competency guidance
  • Scenario discussion
  • Q and A’s

A modified pdf of the presentation and resources/links will be available on the Wessex LMCs Website after the event.

Objectives

Following the session, the clinician will have information and resources to gain a basic knowledge of, and skills for planning/treatment and referral, post assessment. This will be centred on the new National Wound Care Strategy Programme (NWCSP) Lower Limb Recommendations (2023) particularly in relation to discovery, assessment, outcomes and its impact in Primary Care.

NB: The session will not deem the learner 'competent'. The ‘journey to competency’ will be explored using national capability framework resource and subsequent eLearning modules, as will contacting the Tissue Viability team to access any local policies, documents and tools to support their learning that may be available.

A modified pdf of the presentation and resources/links will be available on the Wessex LMCs Website after the event.
