Welcome to DE Connect.
People with diabetes are in contact with lots of health professionals, creating a health team around each individual. Increasing the knowledge and skills of the team members about contemporary diabetes care will create positive outcomes for the person’s diabetes care.
DE@Connect is inspired by Credentialled Diabetes Educator Jayne Lehmann’s vision to see more people with diabetes achieve their glycaemic target. In Australia 50% of people with diabetes are not reaching their glycaemic targets. That figure is way too high and supporting primary care health professionals to deliver quality grass roots diabetes care and education is likely to improve this statistic.
Drop in and break the isolation; explore information, resources, tips and activities to support your delivery of evidence based diabetes care and education. Update your skills and be inspired to use them to improve the health of people with diabetes you support.
