Our Aim

At AH Diabetes we are committed to providing a high quality, holistic and patient centered service to those living with diabetes, their families, and the community.  With a focus on enhancing quality of life.

Our Clinical Team

AH Diabetes team consists of a number of registered nurses, 2 accredited practising dietitians and a registered podiatrist. Most of us are registered Credentialled Diabetes Educators with the Australian Diabetes Educators Association (ADEA).

Why choose a Credentialled Diabetes Educator (CDE)?

A Credentialled Diabetes Educator meets the Australian Diabetes Educators Association (ADEA) standards of practice, has completed a postgraduate certificate in diabetes education and management from an ADEA accredited University, complies with the ADEA professional development and clinical experience requirements, and is eligible to practice in their primary discipline. Credentialled diabetes educators are able to supply the most up to date information on diabetes self-management.

Why choose an Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD)?

Accredited Practising Dietitians (APDs) are university-qualified professionals that undertake ongoing training and education programs to ensure that they are your most up-to-date and credible source of nutrition information. They translate scientific health and nutrition information into practical advice, and practise in line with DAA Professional Standards, including the DAA Code of Professional Conduct and Statement of Ethical Practice.

Why choose a Registered Podiatrist?

Podiatrists are foot health experts who are university-trained to prevent, diagnose, treat and rehabilitate medical and surgical conditions of the feet and lower limbs. Often, these conditions stem from other underlying health issues such as diabetes, stress fractures and arthritis.
