Abstract

Position statement

As our population ages the number of older people with diabetes is rising rapidly, many of whom have other conditions that make self-management difficult, such as dementia, arthritis and tremors. As a result, an increasing number of people with diabetes rely on community care providers to administer their insulin injections.
