Developing the ‘Look after your legs’ CD

01/06/07 | Leg Ulcers | Anna Gibbins, Lynn Davis

The ‘Look after your legs’ leg-shaped self-care prompt tool is used within a nurse-led outreach leg ulcer clinic and social support group in Gloucester. A casual comment from a visitor to the clinic inspired a project to set the message from the self-help tool to music with the help of musicians, patients and the wider multicultural community. This article describes the journey taken to achieve the creation and development of a CD that can help to enable patients to receive the healthcare messages contained within the leaflet in a light-hearted, yet effective, way.
