Sick Day Management – Prepare your diabetes patients so they can avoid the hospital

 

    • In the event that your patient with diabetes becomes ill, knowing what to do in advance can help them better cope, better recover and avoid hospitalization.

    • Our Diabetes Sick Day Management Education and Medication Assessment service will cover how to care for yourself if dehydrated or not eating as usual.

    • As well, ALL medications the patient uses (not just their diabetes prescriptions) will be assessed and those that should be temporarily stopped will be identified.

    • Patient education materials and a personalized list of medications to temporarily stop taking will be provided to the patient for future reference in the event of illness.

    • If your patient is a T1D, we will also cover insulin titrations during illness and education about DKA and hypos.

    • The Sick Day Management Education and Medication Assessment service is available virtually by phone or video, and is a MOHLTC covered service (at no charge to patients).
