The examination should be performed on a diabetic patient. The patient does not have to have any current foot complaints. Read through the checklist to ensure that you recognize and understand all of the terms used prior to the examination. If any of the terms are unfamiliar to you, discuss them with your preceptor. If you have not had a diabetic patient by November, please let Dr. German or Dr. Powell know.
If you do not have a filament to perform the Semmes-Weinstein sensory examination, check with Sue on A hall.
