dc.description.abstractProblem: Diabetes is becoming an epidemic with increasing numbers of patients diagnosed each year. Deshpande, Harris-Hayes, and Schootman (2008) clarify that diabetes is a chronic metabolic condition that has a trend of increasing prevalence in the United States. The surge in prevalence of diabetes brings an increase in healthcare costs. Preventative care, such as diabetic foot screening and education, is one strategy that will lead to a reduction in healthcare costs and is a direct way providers can influence the lives of diabetics.|Purpose: The purpose of this study is to identify the knowledge, beliefs, barriers, and current practices of actively practicing Nebraska Nurse Practitioner (NNP) members in regards to comprehensive diabetic foot care and to determine if ADA foot care guidelines are being utilized.|Subjects: NNP members with intent of focusing on nurse practitioners working in primary care in Nebraska.|Methods: Data collection was concluded by participants completing a 15 question survey concerning demographics, provider knowledge, beliefs, barriers, and performance of diabetic foot care, and guidelines for foot care. Surveys were distributed utilizing Survey Monkey and sent out on December 27, 2012 through January 10, 2013. Participation was voluntary and providers remained anonymous. Data analysis will be conducted with results completed by January 30, 2013. Descriptive statistics and correlations between demographics and survey responses will be analyzed. This study will help identify primary care providers’ barriers to providing diabetic foot care to patients.en_US
