A pack of low literacy diabetes care support resources and instructions on their use is a valuable resource for disability support organisations. Due to their simple messaging, they are equally useful for busy support workers! Topics covered include when to see the doctor, what to do when levels are high or low, treatment of hypoglycaemia, how to check a blood glucose level, how to give insulin, lifestyle management of diabetes and more. These are useful for disability support organisations and health professionals wanting low literacy resources for their service.
