Insulin Pump Therapy Program

In 2013, the DON SCN implemented Alberta Health’s provincial Insulin Pump Therapy (IPT) Program. This program is designed to support diabetes management in persons with Type 1 diabetes.

The IPT program covers the cost of insulin pumps and basic diabetic supplies for Alberta residents with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus (T1DM) that meet eligibility criteria. IPT is a way of managing diabetes by administering insulin using an insulin pump, as an alternative to multiple daily injections.

In implementing this program the DON SCN:

  • developed evidence-based eligibility and ineligibility criteria and protocols
  • continues to provided project management for province-wide implementation
  • supplied advice on a program evaluation emphasizing patient outcomes
