Connect Care: Some More How To Items

This page is in development and relevant only to Diabetes Centre Calgary clinicians.

An extensive, searchable list of information sheets and support materials from Connect Care is available here.

Standard Tab Layout

It's easier if all educators use the same tabs, and organize them in a consistent order. The first time that you open a patient chart, customize the tabs as shown below, using the wrench icon in the row where the tabs appear. Remove the tabs you don’t need and add the ones you do need. Drag and drop tabs in the order shown.

Note: The Diabetes Management tab is found within the "Quick Navigators" in the menu.
