Modern diabetes care demands the comprehensive knowledge of multiple medical, nursing and paramedical specialties and is ideally delivered by a coordinated team of experts. This care should be provided in an individualized or person-centred manner to improve its acceptability as well as its effectiveness. Diabetes care is constantly evolving, hopefully for the better.

Type 1 diabetes is a complex and challenging disease due to its physiological, behavioural and psychosocial characteristics. Diabetes care and education is life-long and people who are affected must adapt as they age.
