Inspiro diabetes clinic - Integrated Diabetes Education and Assessment Service (IDEAS)
The Integrated Diabetes Education and Assessment Service at Inspiro supports clients to self-manage their Type 2 Diabetes, helping to prevent some of the complications that come from diabetes like blindness, kidney disease and other issues that can arise if people with diabetes are not looked after well.
The clinic provides a specialised diabetes care team focus, aiming to prevent people’s symptoms worsening and requiring hospitalisation by providing effective diabetes management and treatment.
Endocrinologists, credentialed diabetes nurse educators, nurses and allied health practitioners assist clients
The clinic provides care in a community setting and includes an endocrinologist, credentialed diabetes nurse educators, nurses and allied health practitioners including podiatrists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and dentists.
