Diabetes management and action plans
The Perth Children’s Hospital Diabetes Service and the Department of Education Western Australia endorse the use of the diabetes management and action plans listed below for implementation in all early years, primary and secondary school settings.
These schools plans are based on current evidence-based, best practice for young people with type 1 diabetes in Western Australia. They can be filled in via the interactive pdf and printed (filling in name and other details, ticking relevant boxes where indicated by the parent/carer and young person in consultation with the diabetes treating team).
All plans will need to be signed by the clinical treating team before being submitted to the school. You can download and complete the interactive pdf, and bring a printed copy to your next clinic appointment.
The action plan on the first page can be copied and displayed around the school or early learning centre to provide a fast reference for managing a child’s blood glucose levels if too high or too low.
