Hi my name is Siobhan and like you, I too deal with and manage diabetes as my son has Type 1 diabetes and was diagnosed at age 6. I am a board member of the Type 1 Foundation and help raise much needed funds each year. I am involved in many research projects to help improve the lives and care of many people with Type 1 diabetes.
I am a certified insulin pump trainer so I can support you with insulin pump therapy and continuous glucose monitoring devices, and bolus calculators.
I understand how to support the you and not just the condition and that a person-centred care approach is what I aim to provide to lessen the burden on you and your family.
I want to provide support and education to people with diabetes in a non-judgemental way by motivating and empowering you to manage your condition the best way you can whilst acknowledging it is the most challenging and exhausting condition to manage.
At Diabetes North Queensland, our focus is on the individual, not just the condition. We understand that treating diabetes is not just about medications and blood glucose levels, but about helping the person to manage their everyday life. Our aim is to provide a person-centred care approach that lessens the burden on the client and their family. We understand what it takes to support the whole person, not just their physical health. We'll work with you to create an individualised treatment plan that works for you and your lifestyle.
I also offer diabetes training and support to health agencies, health providers, aged care homes, work places and family on all aspects of diabetes. The training provided can include management of insulin administration, hypoglycaemia from diabetes treatments to general education on diabetes.
