Diabetes Canada’s Recommendations to the Government of Canada
1. Implement a nationwide diabetes framework based on Diabetes 360°, aimed at achieving measurable improvements in diabetes outcomes and reducing its burden on Canadians and the health-care system.
2. Ensure fairness in access to the Disability Tax Credit and Registered Disability Savings Plan for Canadians living with type 1 diabetes.
3. Adopt a nationwide approach to reduce out-of-pocket costs for people living with diabetes and facilitate their achievement of better health outcomes while maintaining or improving access to evidence-based therapy.
4. Take a leadership role in implementing decision support tools for diabetes management by incorporating electronic medical records into health systems within federal jurisdiction and support provinces/territories to do the same.
