DTN-UK Best Practice Guides
A group of clinicians with expertise in continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) from across the UK have been meeting regularly to discuss and share their best practice. We have summarised the outcomes of these discussions in the published Best Practice Guides below. We extremely grateful to Parth Narendran and Ali Karamat and team for developing the guide for those hospitalised on CSII and also to Peter Hammond and team for the development of the CSII clinical guide for adult services.
Diabetes UK – Diabetes Technology
In 2017 Diabetes UK spoke to around 9,000 people about what would help them to live well in the future with diabetes. Access to technologies was one of the highest priorities.
There is international recognition that people using diabetes technology are more likely to achieve optimal glucose levels, so ensuring uptake and support for patients and professionals to access these technologies is key.
Welcome to the Diabetes Technology Network UK, an organisation designed to support UK health care professionals who are involved in the delivery of technologies designed to improve the lives of people living with diabetes.
Healthcare professionals working in diabetes are welcome to register as a member of the DTN-UK. The education resources and best practice guides are free to access for all.
