- Interprofessional skills in the prevention and management of the at risk foot
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

|1||critically appraise the evidence pertaining to the assessment and management of the high-risk foot|
|2||assess foot complication risk in at-risk populations|
|3||assess the clinical presentation of the acute and chronic high-risk foot|
|4||apply practical skills to assess, prevent and treat the high-risk foot|
|5||safely and appropriately manage acute foot wounds and those in remission|
|6||demonstrate competence in a clinical multi-disciplinary high-risk foot setting|
