Frontier Healthcare Diabetic Forum 2008
As part of our Chronic Disease Management, we organised our first Chronic Disease Forum for diabetic patients of our clinic network. The event was sponsored by Novo Nordisk, Accu-Chek, Bio-rad with the support of Health Promotion Board and was held in Sep 2008.
Diabetic patients from our clinics were invited to attend the forum together with a caregiver/family member. It was conducted in Mandarin and English and the format included an educational talk by the nurse educator, on-site screening of HbA1C and DRP, and a visit to HPB's Healthzone.
The Forum was well received by our diabetic patients and their caregivers. A patient educational forum like this will be conducted on a regular basis as part of our holistic care of patients with chronic diseases.
