Diabetes emergency plan

Diabetes Australia (DA), the National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS) and the Australian Diabetes Educators Association (ADEA) have jointly developed a Diabetes Emergency Plan and promotional resources to provide emergency preparedness information for individuals and organisations that help people with diabetes. 

A Diabetes Emergency Plan helps patients self-manage their diabetes before, during and after an emergency. Planning ahead reduces the risk of diabetes-related infections and life-threatening situations.  This plan includes a checklist of items to create an emergency diabetes kit.

A partnership between ESA and the US Endocrine Society

ESA has established an international collaboration with the US Endocrine Society to adapt patient information to the Australian setting and make them readily available. These are available in both English and Chinese. 

These resources are rigorously developed, evidence based and aimed to support patients to understand their endocrine condition with the support of their doctor. 

This information is designed to be informative and educational. It is not intended to provide specific medical advice or replace advice from your doctor.
