What is Diabetes Education?


Diabetes education is an important aspect of care provided at Cabrini. We specialise in the provision of diabetes self-management education for everyone with diabetes.

The service aims to optimise the care and knowledge of patients and their families. We offer the highest standard of diabetes education based on the most current scientific knowledge, innovation, excellence and partnership.

The Diabetes Education Services comprises a team of highly skilled and professionally qualified diabetes educators. They help those with diabetes to modify behaviour and successfully self-manage diabetes and its related complications and conditions.


Our services

The Diabetes Education Service provides a range of inpatient and outpatient services for everyone with, or affected by diabetes including Type 1, Type 2 and gestational.

Inpatient service

Diabetes educators liaise with medical staff, nurses and other allied health professionals at Cabrini to ensure your diabetes needs are being met both during your hospital stay and for your discharge home. We support and motivate our inpatients to understand and use their medications effectively and safely, monitor and interpret their blood glucose levels, discuss the relevance and importance of incorporating physical activity into daily living and gain a clear understanding of diabetes and informed lifestyle changes.

If you wish to see a diabetes educator during your hospital stay, ask your nurse to refer you.


Outpatient service

Our diabetes educators are available for consultation on all aspects of diabetes. The diabetes education outpatient service assists clients to make informed lifestyle choices to reduce the development of diabetes-related complications while maintaining their wellbeing.

The Diabetes Educators at Cabrini are able to assist with you Insulin Pumps, Continuous Glucose Monitoring and are up to date with all the latest diabetes related technology.
