Insulin Injection Resources

With the help of Gary Scheiner, MS, CDE, AADE has created a series of tip sheets for diabetes educators to use when assisting their patients with understanding how insulin works and teaching proper injection techniques. Also included is an Injection Assessment Checklist to help you evaluate your patients' injection practices and determine areas of educational need.
