Bridging the gap in diabetes care - what role can peer support play?

People with diabetes spend a mere three hours yearly with healthcare professionals, leaving a gap of 8,757 hours. In today's healthcare and economic challenges, is peer support the missing link?
This presentation explores the transformative power of peer support, shedding light on the benefits it brings. It also urges healthcare services to seize this as an opportunity to integrate peer support as an essential element in diabetes care.
