The main aim of this programme is to make the registrants productive members of the society by improving their quality of life, by keeping them free from developing life threatening complications. Further it is essential to instill confidence that it is a manageable illness and one can lead a normal life like any other.

 

Activities consist of:

    1. Capacity building - Specialised Clinics

      Dr Danielle Van Der Kaay, a Consultant Paediatric Endocrinologist from the Netherlands and Ms Angela Middlehurst specialised Paediatric nurse who is the Education Manager of LFAC, Australia visited the NDC from 6-17th March 2O17. This was a very productive visit of capacity building where daily clinics were held to optimize their management. In addition, our staff received specialised training in diabetes care and education. A day camp was arranged where informal discussions took place with registrants, parents and caregivers to improve their control in their homes, school and work environment and to address individual problems. Games were organized to improve team work and leadership skills of the 60 registrants who attended. Several home visits of the T1DM young persons supported by the organization were made and video recordings taken to obtain first hand information.
