  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • This consensus statement was prepared by an independent panel of health professionals, academics, and public representatives based on (1) relevant published studies assembled by the Institute of Health Economics, (2) presentations by experts working in areas relevant to the conference questions, (3) presentations by people living with diabetes, (4) questions and comments from conference attendees during open discussion periods, and (5) closed deliberations by the panel. It is an independent report of the panel and is not a policy statement of the Institute of Health Economics or the Government of Alberta. This consensus statement reflects the panel’s assessment of scientific knowledge available at the time the statement was written. The objectives of the panel are to develop a consensus statement on the benefits and costs of testing supplies for self-monitoring of blood glucose in diabetes, to inform patients, health policy, and practice.
