Tēnā koutou katoa,
The National Clinical Network for Children and Young People with Diabetes (CN) was one of the first networks of the New Zealand Child and Youth Clinical Network (NZCYCN) programme developed in partnership with the Paediatric Society of New Zealand – Te Kāhui Mātai Arotamariki o Aotearoa. This programme is funded by Manatū Hauora Ministry of Health.
The purpose of the CN is to provide clinical leadership and oversight to ensure there is a planned and consistent approach to the provision of diabetes services for taitamariki across Aotearoa.
The aim of the network is to improve the care of taitamariki with diabetes and support their whānau through clinical networking, development of resources, and audits. An annual workplan is developed and all deliverables are aimed to improve equity of access to healthcare and health outcomes for all taitamariki including Māori, Pasifika, disabled and other populations impacted by structural barriers.
Over the last year, the network has worked on a number of activities, and the attached snapshot is an infographic to outline our achievements over these 6 months.
Please do reach out if you have any questions or feedback for us as we all work together to improve the care of taitamariki with diabetes in Aotearoa.
