Information for health professionals—COVID-19 changes to the delivery of continuous glucose monitoring starter kits


In response to COVID-19 the Australian Government has introduced a temporary change to enable a continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) starter kit to be sent directly to the residential address of the person with diabetes or their carer/guardian. This may be appropriate when access to a face-to-face opportunity for the health professional to provide education and support for the setup and ongoing use of the CGM device is unavailable.

For health professionals, visit our Changes to the NDSS for health professionals page.
