Diabetes education

Diabetes Nurse Educators can assist adults with diabetes self-management, including insulin administration, for people who have:

  • Pre-diabetes
  • Type 1 diabetes
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Gestational diabetes

Diabetes Nurse Educators will explain:

  • What is diabetes and how it affects the body
  • Blood glucose monitoring
  • How to prevent diabetes complications
  • When to have recommended health checks
  • Medications for diabetes management, including insulin therapy and Byetta
  • Pre-pregnancy planning and advice upon request (from GP/Diabetes Specialist)

How the Diabetes Nurse Educators work with you:

  • An initial assessment is usually one hour long and review appointments 30 minutes.
  • We provide ongoing support to help you achieve your health goals
  • We work closely with the diabetes team at Link Health and Community to provide you with coordinated care
  • We can help you access other services which may also assist in your care
