Structured Diabetes Eduction topic launched!

Knowledge is one of the 3 key components, alongside motivation and behavioural skills, that support people to look after their own health, prevent or manage illness and maintain a good quality of life.

This short topic aims to:

1) raise the awareness of the importance of people living with diabetes attending structured diabetes education.

2) encourage healthcare staff to support people living with diabetes to attend suitable diabetes education.

3) promote accurate documentation of the diabetes education referral as well as attendance.

4) reinforce that education is a ongoing, lifelong process that needs to be included in each health contact.

The topic was created in partnership working with the South London Health Innovation Network.

CDEP would like to thank all the people who supported us develop and test the content prior to its launch.
