FIT Recommendations

The Forum for Injection Technique (FIT) was developed to establish and promote best practice in injection technique for all involved in diabetes care.

The recommendations within this document aim to raise awareness of existing and emerging research related to injection technique.

Implementation of these recommendations may have a direct impact on the health outcomes of those individuals living with diabetes who require subcutaneous injection therapy. This document will be distributed to all Health Care Professionals involved in injection therapy for diabetes. A Canadian
injection practice survey will be conducted. Analysis of this data will guide future recommendations.

The development of FIT and the subsequent Canadian recommendations for injection technique have been supported by BD Canada and endorsed by pharmaceutical companies whose therapies include subcutaneous injections of insulin and GLP-1 receptor agonists.
