Diabetes management and action plans

The Perth Children’s Hospital Diabetes Service and the Department of Education Western Australia endorse use of the diabetes management and action plans listed below for implementation in all early years, primary and secondary school settings.

These management and action plans are based on current evidence-based, best practice for young people with type 1 diabetes and are provided here for use in a secure PDF format only.

The content and wording is not to be changed.  The expectation is that the relevant management and action plans for a young person are printed and personalised by hand (filling in name and other details, ticking relevant boxes where indicated by the parent/carer and young person in consultation with the diabetes treating team).

Each student should have one management plan and one action plan, which complement each other according to the current treatment they follow (TDI = twice daily injections; MDI = multiple daily injections or insulin pump therapy).

Primary and secondary school settings

For children and young people in primary and secondary school settings please use the relevant plans below. This applies to children and young people in kindergarten up to year 12.
