Full description:

If you have diabetes and develop a foot ulcer, you are likely to develop more ulcers in future.

We want to further develop a psychological technique called motivational interviewing to help people with diabetes to look after their diabetes more effectively.

We would like your help to develop our motivational interviewing treatment, and how to evaluate it by testing whether it might work in a small trial, before we evaluate its effectiveness in a larger trial.
