Abstract

THE COMPREHENSIVE LOWER Extremity Assessment Form was developed in response to the need for a screening tool in a nurse-managed foot care clinic. It differs from other such tools because it includes clinical measures that identify the potential for foot pathology. The Comprehensive Lower Extremity Assessment Form also serves as an assessment teaching guide in a foot care course and is included as part of a home-study program. The authors demonstrate how the Comprehensive Lower Extremity Assessment Form has generated revenue as part of an intrapreneurial outgrowth of their foot clinic and provides a comprehensive approach to lower extremity assessment. The form can be tailored to meet the needs of the advanced practice nurse, the clinical setting, or patient population.
