The changing face of diabetes education - is virtual here to stay?

11 Nov 2021
Workshop 2

The world of diabetes education has changed exponentially in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic; however are these changes here to stay? This presentation and discussion will consider the changes that have taken place, what healthcare organisations are currently offering including feedback from patient attendees, and also how this is affecting the commissioning of such services going forward. As well as providing a chance to explore the impact that the move to virtual has had on healthcare professional training and quality assurance.

  • Understanding of the current type 2 diabetes education offer
  • How the offer has evolved over recent years
  • How this has affected commissioning of diabetes education services
  • The impact on HCP training and quality assurance practices.
