Diabetes - Special Focus: The RQHR Regional Diabetes Initiative
Diabetes prevention and management in the RQHR is planned, delivered and evaluated within the context of the Prevention and Management Model for Chronic Disease (Expanded Chronic Care Model) and is informed by the Provincial Diabetes Plan and the RQHR vision, mission and strategic themes.
People are empowered and supported to develop and maintain healthy lifestyles and have the necessary resources and supports to be proactive and self-determining and take responsibility for their health and well being.
A community health system exists which is holistic and includes mental health, physical health, spiritual health, and emotional health. Individuals move seamlessly through the health system and across the health care continuum. Jurisdictional issues are not a barrier to care for First Nations and Métis people. Traditional cultural practices and beliefs are integral aspects of prevention and care and traditional lifestyles are supported and respected by health care providers.
The team provides and acts on the best resources and information available. Ongoing and continuing education for providers is supported and promoted.
The necessary tools and information systems exist to support regular timely, ongoing and multidirectional communication. Adherence to the latest clinical practice guidelines and best practices is monitored and drives team practice and needed information to drive quality improvement is readily available to decision makers. All team members have access to the necessary human, financial and equipment resources.
