Katleen Cools

Diabetes educator
& reference nurse wound care

I have had experience as a nurse for 20 years. First, I worked in the hospital in the surgery department. Wound care was one of my executive duties here. Later I switched to home nursing.

Due to the aging of the population and the unhealthy lifestyle of many, I met more and more people with diabetes. As a result, I continued to study wound care and the disease diabetes. The reason is, first and foremost, that I have always had a great interest in this but also to be able to continue to offer care of excellent quality.

In 2012 I started the training as a reference nurse wound care, and later in 2017, the training for diabetes educator. After acquiring these degrees, I wanted to make the most of this expertise and therefore founded InsulinityCare.

Diabetes education

The number of people diagnosed with diabetes is increasing.
This condition implies a number of profound changes in your life. I teach you how to deal with these changes.

My daily challenge is to motivate and support the patient to adapt his lifestyle and accept their chronic condition.

As a diabetes educator, my job is to support and provide you with guidance for understanding your illness. Together we discuss the approach of the care process ("zorgtraject") to achieve the best possible result: lead a healthy life despite your diabetes. All this in consultation with your doctor and specialist.

Wound care

Taking care of wounds requires experience and expertise to ensure optimal healing. As a wound care reference nurse, I offer you optimal wound care while being in the comfort of your own home.

Any small or large, simple or complex, acute or chronic wound? I help you with your wound care.

General home nursing

In addition to my specializations, I still do general nursing tasks. These tasks include injections, bandages, hygiene, medication, and so on. If you need any nursing help, feel free to contact me for more information.
