Diabetes Intermediate Care Project
The purpose of the diabetes based work of the national demonstrator at Cardiff was to develop a proposal to move a proportion of secondary care based diabetes out patient clinics into the community.
The work looked into the realignment of services into the community and ensure appropriate access for the population, and a reduced reliance on secondary care services, and deliver a model for community based diabetes management for different communities.
Progress was made and the model, using intermediate care clinics, whilst identifying the benefits with clinicians and can now be viewed below. The Diabetes Intermediate Care Project is consistent with the strategic direction outlined in the Diabetes National Service Framework (NSF - DH 2001), Designed for Life (WAG, 2005) and the integrated CCM Model and Framework within Designed to Improve Health and the Management of Chronic Conditions in Wales (WAG, 2007). Particular objectives outlined in the strategy that the diabetes project in Cardiff aimed to achieve are to prevent and delay the onset of and early deterioration of chronic conditions; improve the quality of life for people living with chronic conditions;reduce the impact of chronic conditions on secondary care and care homes; increase self management, independence, and the participation of people with chronic conditions and their carers and; improving the quality of patient care closer to home. The project targeted patients in Level 2 of the Welsh Chronic Conditions Model.
