Abstract

MARTINEZ ALBERTO, Carlos Enrique et al. Systematic review in search of a procedure for nursing evaluation of diabetic peripheral neuropathy: second phase of the "NEUDIACAN®" study. Ene. [online]. 2018, vol.12, n.2, 221.  Epub Sep 23, 2018. ISSN 1988-348X.

Diabetic peripheral neuropathy (NPD) is one of the most common and problematic complications of diabetes mellitus. It is the leading cause of ulcers and amputations in the lower limbs. As a result of the first phase of the NEUDIACAN® study, no validated procedure was found for the assessment of diabetic peripheral neuropathy among health professionals of the Canary Islands’ primary health care setting. Therefore, we conducted a comprehensive search for studies of an evaluation system, such as a scale, test, procedure or protocol, validated for nursing use that complied with characteristics that would allow it be applied in the field of primary care, to prevent the onset of complications such as the diabetic foot.
