Adult learning within self-management and support

Supported self-management is key to the successful day to day management of diabetes, putting the person with diabetes at the centre of their care and working in partnership with their healthcare professional team.

Any self-management approach must include personalised care planning, psychological and emotional support and access to information and learning as essential elements.

Diabetes UK are calling for patient education to be seen as an ongoing process, assessing individual circumstances and offering different learning approaches at different stages in the journey of an individual with diabetes.

This position statement outlines appropriate educational initiatives that should be funded and delivered to meet the need of people with diabetes at all levels.
