The Diabetic Patients Meetings

The Community Network Diabetic Program realized the importance of diabetic patient education in helping the patients to bring about life style changes. However, a busy doctor may find it difficult to devote enough time for this purpose. For this reason, we organized a diabetic patient education meeting with the following targets in mind.

Aim of the meetings

  1. To give patients basic diabetic knowledge
  2. To give dietary tips for diabetic control
  3. To introduce the concept of exercise prescription
  4. To provide on site counseling on the diabetic medications the patients are taking
  5. To provide body check stations such as smoking cessation, BMI measurement, blood pressure measurement and blood sugar testing.

Activities held:

  1. Diabetic patient meeting: Diabetic Mellitus, what you need to know? -- 10 April 2005
  2. Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Workshop 2005
  3. Diabetic patient meeting: Diabetic Mellitus-Preventing Complications -- 20 November 2005
