The establishment of a correct diagnosis is relative to established guidelines and reinforces all subsequent therapeutic activity. Complications can arise when nomenclatures overlap, as is the case with diabetic foot ulceration, heel ulceration and pressure injuries on the foot occurring in people with diabetes. In such cases, clinicians must ensure that patients receive a care plan that aligns both the wound causation and the underlying pathology. Patient care can then be optimized to include appropriate assessments, management, and general foot and skin care.
