Welcome to the website for ThinkGlucose
Although the NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement has now closed the ThinkGlucose programme will continue to be fully supported by our accredited delivery partners, whose contact details are available here.
The number of people with diabetes is steadily increasing, but the provision of consistent, effective and proactive inpatient care for people with diabetes as a secondary condition is still inadequate.
ThinkGlucose addresses this, supporting hospital trusts to deliver a clinical pathway that improves the management of patients with diabetes as a secondary diagnosis.
ThinkGlucose is within the recommended guidance for DH Never Events for Maladministration of insulin. It is a publication partner for the NICE Clinical Standards for Adults with Diabetes (launched in April 2011). Access the standards.
Toolkit and support packages
ThinkGlucose provides a package of tried and tested products, learning and support. The ThinkGlucose toolkit (and support opportunities) will help you identify and overcome the obstacles to effective care of people with diabetes as a secondary condition.
If you would like to order a ThinkGlucose toolkit then please contact one of our accredited delivery partners whose contact details can be found here.
