CNIB’s advocacy team is conducting research about the accessibility of insulin pumps for people who are living with diabetes and sight loss. As part of this research, the team is launching a survey to better understand the accessibility issues people face when administering insulin.
The project welcome responses from people living with diabetes and sight loss, their caregivers, medical professionals, people working in the insulin device industry and anyone who has a connection to sight loss and diabetes. If you have diabetes and sight loss but currently administer insulin through a method that is not a pump, the group would also like to learn more about your experiences through this survey.
Information about the survey and how the information collected will be used to advocate for change is included in the link to the survey below: https://www.surveymonkey.ca/r/Y5H5LPC
