    I’ve always though case managers for chronic health problems was a good thing for the government to do. If people are unable to manage their illness themselves (which people with diseases really need to do), it might be better to have someone else doing the organising. They could find GP’s that bulk bill, organise blood tests, make appointments with specialists such as dieticians and endocrinologists and perform weekly assessments of blood glucose levels etc. Diabetes educators could perform this role…there is no need for doctors to get involved (as is the case of GP’s), and would probably be a more cost effective solution. They could operate in small local areas and see multiple clients. Having a case manager might help those who feel they are powerless to navigate our complicated health system.
