Can you have a 3 word phrase in Scrabble?

I think it’s fair to set out what’s expected of a patient – what that is depends on the actual patient. eg if you asked me to commit to doing as I’m told, I’d tell you that I commit to listening to what you have to say, doing independent research on the subject and making my own decisions. But at least I’m demonstrating that I see I have an important part to play in my own care. Other people might demonstrate that by turning up to appointments, attending education classes etc.

HbA1c improvement is a very clumsy measure to track pump success by, it’s one factor to look at, but little more that that.

I’d like to see a similar list of what I can expect from my diabetes team too. That way, we all know what’s expected of each other.
