Conclusion The role of the DSN is diverse and needs to continually evolve to respond to the needs of the population and the resources available.

Some Medicare Locals, government funded regional primary care organisations charged with planning and integrating health services to improve access to effective primary health care services, fund DNEs to provide outreach care to general practices, but there is currently no funding model for DNEs in other settings to provide these services. The team is now supported by a designated diabetologist.

Abstract Objectives. A lack of knowledge of the practice nurse training and role were potential barriers to specialist support for a role in insulin initiation. Who are diabetes nurses? This was particularly the case for DNEs, some of whom viewed this as a potential threat to their role. As you can be seen, action is needed both to support our existing DSNs and secure a sustainable DSN workforce for the future. Item Type:.

In the UK, the majority of patients with diabetes are community based and the DSN plays a vital role in ensuring that they are able to access care and can remain at home rather than coming into hospital.
