The Keep Moving project was developed in response to the need to build the capacity of personnel working to prevent lower limb amputation as a result of diabetes; and to support the return to mobility of men and women who have had an amputation.
The project began with an analysis of the prevention and management of lower limb amputation; including identification of six phases and a range of interventions possible during each phase. Training resource development for most, if not all of these interventions, would be beneficial for the Pacific context; however. this was not feasible within the project scope. Early consultation with stakeholders in the Region and a review of existing materials was therefore carried out in order to prioritise and focus resource development.
As a result, the Keep Moving project developed training resources for three topics :
- Offloading foot ulcers
- Shoes for healthy feet
- Mobility without a prosthesis
Keep Moving resources were developed in partnership with the College of Medicine, Nursing and Health Science, Fiji National University (FNU) and the International Society of Prosthetics and Orthotics’ Australian Member Society – Outreach Committee (ISPO Australia Outreach). The project was funded by the WHO Western Region Pacific Office. The modules have been peer-reviewed.
