Ardens has created a wide range of clinical templates to assist with data entry for a variety of clinical areas.


The available Diabetes Templates include:

  • Gestational Diabetes – advice on when to offer an OGTT test and diagnose as gestational diabetes, record management and other advice including the Postpartum review.
  • PITstop GLP-1 - this template concerns PITstop GLP-1, which is a structured care pathway for GLP-1 Agonists. Assessment, initiation and initial review details can be recorded, as well as information gathered during 3 and 6 monthly reviews.
  • PITstop insulin - this template concerns the assessment and initiation of insulin, and allows for the recording of such details, as well as information gathered during the first review (1 week after initiation), and then at the 1, 3 and 6 monthly reviews.


The Diabetes templates are located in the Ardens Live Toolset > Clinical Templates folder.


They may be accessed within the patient record in one of the following ways:


Click on the Run Template option within the consultation.

Click on the Add > Data using Template option outside of a consultation.


Clicking on either of the options above will display the Template Picker screen. 


Search for the template you require using the search box provided or via the navigation pane. Select the template and click on OK.


Complete the template using the required fields and ensure you save the information, using the Save option.


If using the template via the Run Template option within an open consultation, you will also need to click Save to save the consultation.


The Clinical Templates folders all contain a Template Launcher protocol,  which will launch a list of templates to run.


To use this protocol for the respiratory templates, add the’ zTemplate launcher: Diabetes’ protocol to your F12 key. When you run the protocol, you will be presented with links to each of the individual templates contained in that folder.


If you are unfamiliar with adding a protocol to the F12 key, please see this support article.
