PRESS RELEASE – The Ministry of Health Wellness, Human Services and Gender Relations in collaboration with the Pan American Health Organisation will be hosting two-day workshops on Improving the Quality of Care with Persons with Diabetes on Thursday, May 29, and Friday, May 30, at the National Mental Wellness Centre.

This workshop serves to follow-up and give feedback on the use of this Chronic Care Passport which was piloted in St Lucia between 2009 and 2012 and to also introduce a new version of a Chronic Care Passport (CCP).

St. Lucia was one among some other Caribbean countries who participated in a study that sought to improve the quality of care of persons with diabetes and by extension persons with chronic diseases.

The Chronic Care Passport was developed by the countries and implemented in all thirty three Wellness Centers as a monitoring and empowering tool for persons with diabetes and health care providers. This study was completed in 2012.
