Making every contact count in lower limb care

Making every contact count in lower limb care
Lower limb

Pages: 16 - 16

Making every contact count (MECC) is not a new concept, having been part of clinical practice for many general practice, district and community nurses and driven at all levels through educational programmes by Health Education England for some years now (HEE, 2021). The need for early intervention is vital for many people diagnosed with long-term conditions, and this applies to lower limb management too. Prevention of deterioration is incredibly important within the lower limb management field of practice, and this links well with the philosophy of making every contact count because harm is occurring, and this could be prevented with proactive early intervention.
