This was a good resource and overview of the complications and the screening and preventative strategies used in the treatment of diabetes. Also it touched on statistical references to the indigenous persons. Screen and assessment tools is aged care need to more robustly incorporate these and carers need to know the importance of daily checks re feet etc.
