English Nursing Care a Sri Lankan home nursing care service is advocating this year’s campaign for World Diabetes Day as per the World Health Organisation (WHO): ‘Nurses Make the Difference’, by recognising the impactful work nurses perform and investing in further training and education their team of home nurses.
The aim is to recognise nurses and the crucial role they play in supporting people living with diabetes. While doctors may create a diabetic care plan, it usually falls to nurses to provide care and to educate patients about managing diabetes. Diabetes is a complex disease that requires nurses to stay up-to-date on the latest approaches to managing the condition. This includes providing diabetic wound care; this care is important because diabetes slows the healing of wounds, especially on the feet. Nurses know that diabetic patients are at higher risk for problems such as infections, disturbed sensory perception and nutritional imbalances. Nurses can identify these problems early and provide the needed care. As the number of people with diabetes continues to rise across the world, the role of nurses and other health professional support staff becomes critical.
With over 50 years of experience in community care, the team of nurses at English Nursing Care will work closely with your loved ones to manage their diabetes. For further information on English Nursing Care visit their website www.englishnursing.com or call +94 11 4500117.
