In this project, 10 older patients who have uncontrolled diabetes will use wireless technology including a blood glucose monitor and a Blackberry or a Tablet PC to transmit their blood glucose readings from home to two nurses working at a private homecare company. These patients will transmit their blood glucose readings approximately three times a day during two 3]month phases, the total duration of the study period being 6 months. Throughout, patientsf blood glucose levels will be monitored by the two nurses. The intern will coordinate the project including the communication between the nurses, the family physician involved, the partner organizations and the academic supervisors. The intern will track all the processes and troubleshooting involved in the set]up and execution of this project. All the necessary documentation for the project will be provided by the student. At the end of the two phases, the student will analyze all the data produced by the study.
