For Health Professionals and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers/Practitioners

Posters and Brochures

These posters and brochures explain the National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS). They are particularly helpful for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living with diabetes who have not yet registered with the NDSS.

They are ideal for displaying in waiting rooms of community health services.

To download these resources, and others, please visit the NDSS website.

Pictorial Guides

These guides provide easy-to-follow advice on how to manage diabetes through healthy food choices, physical activity, foot care and how diabetes affects your body.

The guides were developed by Diabetes Victoria and the Victorian Aboriginal Community Controlled health organisation (VACCHO). We would like to thank the Aboriginal people who appear in these booklets and acknowledge Sharon Thorpe and Jennifer Brown for their help in the production of these booklets.

Through funding provided by the National Diabetes Services Scheme, Diabetes Queensland has limited numbers of these guides available for distribution. Please contact to order these pictorial guides.
