Comments and feedback welcomed for diabetes documents

The ACI Endocrine Network has developed the NSW Diabetes Model of Care for People with Diabetes Mellitus and Standards for High Risk Foot Services in NSW, which you can find on the right hand column of this page.

The key aims of the of the former document are to ensure that diabetes services are configured to:

  • Improve the quality of life of people who have diabetes
  • Prevent and delay the onset of type 2 diabetes
  • Prevent and slow progression of diabetic complications, especially heart disease, renal failure, impaired vision and lower limb amputations
  • Reduce inequities in diabetes service provision, particularly for Aboriginal people and other disadvantaged groups.

ACI is looking for comments and feedback from health professionals and encourage that you forward them to Rebecca Donovan at rebecca.donovan@aci.health.nsw.gov.au by 14 February 2014.
