Nothing about us without us – How to keep the patients at the heart of everything we do.

SF2 S6

When considering the management of diabetes, it is important to recognise that the person living with diabetes is living with a complex long-term condition involving monitoring diet, reviewing exercise targets and ensuring adherence to multiple medications on a daily basis. A focus on achieving glycaemic, blood pressure and lipid targets has the potential to lose the person at the centre, replacing them with a “patient” and targets.

Session Info:

  • Effective communication
  • How do we tackle health inequalities
  • Maximising each contact opportunity
  • How do we improve the “patient” experience?
  • Addressing concerns and fears as clinics resume activity
  • Rolling multiple checks into check-ups and reviews to assess different risk factors in one consultation
