The goal of the diabetes guidance is the success of selfcare of the diabetic in the best way possible. The end goal is to avoid any possible co-illnesses that could occur, and everyday well-being despite of the long-term illness. The given care guidance is either personal-, group- or mobile guiding.
The diabetes outpatient clinic of Rauma is located at Monipoli 1 where there are both the special health care and general health care receptions. At the polyclinic the diabetic can get both nurse’s and doctor’s admittance as well as the possibilities to get an eyeground screening, foot- and diet therapy with a referral from the doctor.
Special health care takes care mostly of type 1 diabetics and the complicated type 2 diabetics. General health care takes care of type 2 diabetics and type 1 diabetics by judgement.
With doctor’s referral you can seek treatment at special health care. General health care is sought by the treating doctor’s recommendation or by the judgement of the diabetes nurse.
Current Care recommends that all diabetics get their eyegrounds checked regularly. The goal is comprehensive and high-quality screenings and monitoring the changes with the eyeground through pictures.
The treatments of possible changes are treated at the ophthalmology polyclinic at Satasairaala, where the doctor that is responsible for the screenings makes a referral if necessary.
Eyeground screenings are sought by the referral of a doctor or a nurse.
The follow-up examinations of the eyeground screenings can be reserved online through the link that reads Sähköinen ajanvaraus (Online appointment) located on the right lot, after receiving a summon from the unit that is taking care of the follow-up.
Please register in the entrance lobby when arriving at the clinic.
