The National Advisory Panel on Care Home Diabetes, NAPCHD, have launched their guidelines on the management of diabetes in care homes.
We are fortunate to have a member of the Advisory Panel, Lynne Reedman, as one of our mentors. A CQN group has been set up, Diabetes in Care Homes, to support the launch, answer any questions you have, and share ideas. Go to the Groups page and request to join to learn more.
If you would like to carry out an initial audit of diabetes management in your home, a Word version of the NAPCHD guideline can be obtained by contacting us here: https://www.carequalitynetwork.org.uk/contact
The Guidelines are listed below and can also be seen at http://fdrop.net/napchd/
