Description
Patients with diabetes are increasing in Japan. In2007,8.9million persons were estimated to have diabetes in Japan. Forty four % of them were not treated, and only30% achieved good glycemic controls. On the other hand, there are only37diabetes specialists in Tokushima(January2011). To break away the worst mortality rate, we needed to use limited medical resources, effectively.
From April2008, we created a critical pathway to regional medical network for diabetes.
Unfortunately, this critical pathway adapted very limited patients, because it was inconvenient to carry to several hospitals.
Next, we used diabetes network notebook published by Japan Association for Diabetes Education and Care. To evaluate its usefulness as a tool for regional network,35patients who were treated by general practitioner and diabetes specialist, introduced this diabetes network notebooks. Thirty two patients(91.4%)carried the notebooks at their second visit. HbA1c levels did not change between before and after.
Therefore we suggest this notebook may be useful to promote diabetes regional network.
