Use the following resources and tools to improve diabetes education and self-management for people with diabetes.
On average, people with diabetes spend three hours a year with a healthcare professional. For the remaining 8,757 hours they manage their diabetes themselves. Diabetes self-management education helps people to stay healthy, live well and avoid expensive and life threatening complications.
This bright idea describes how South Worcestershire, Wyre Forest and Redditch and Bromsgrove CCGs worked together to develop a menu of education options for people with Type 2 diabetes. The menu includes First Steps, X-PERT and Mapmydiabetes - an innovative online self-management programme.
