Diabetes in children (1 of 9): Your child’s diabetes team

This is the first video of our diabetes series, "Taking charge of our child's diabetes." In this video, you will meet your child’s diabetes team.  Diabetes calls for a team effort. Our team of healthcare providers will provide you with the best care and information for you to tackle your child’s diabetes. Every healthcare team needs a leader. In this case, that is you. You are the one that has the most control over your child’s diabetes, the one who really is in charge. Your health care team depends on you to talk to them honestly and to tell them how your child feels. Your diabetes team includes: doctor (endocrinologists), nurse practitioner, diabetes educator, nurses, dietitian, social worker, child life specialist, and psychology service.
