The Diabetes Canada Clinical Practice Guidelines are intended to guide practice; inform general patterns of care; enhance diabetes prevention efforts in Canada; and reduce the burden of diabetes complications. The intended users are all health-care professionals that are involved in the management of people with diabetes and those at risk of developing diabetes, with a particular focus on primary care or “usual care” providers. The guidelines are also intended for people living with diabetes. In this version, key messages directed at people living with this chronic disease have been added to each chapter.
In particular, the gallery of tools and resources for health-care providers contains a number of relevant client handouts and interactive tools to guide clinical decision making.
