DWELL Project to share information about international programme at Diabetes Professional Care conference
More than 500 people living with type 2 diabetes in the UK, France, Belgium and the Netherlands have been helped to better manage their conditions through a personalised 12-week programme.
Participants receive useful information and support to help manage their condition and are also encouraged to use their own personal goals as the motivation to make durable life-changing improvements.
Programme organisers, the DWELL Project, have so far evaluated the progress of around 400 participants and will share their findings at the Diabetes Professional Care at London Olympia in November.
Project Manager Anna Best said: “We’re thrilled to have seen HbA1c results going in the right direction in all four countries and have very positive stories to share.
“We’re delighted to be able to present our findings to healthcare professionals at the Diabetes Professional Care conference.
“There is always a great atmosphere at the conference and we’re sure the attendees will find our presentation enlightening.”
The DWELL Project session is called Development and Evaluation of an Innovative Psychoeducational Programme for People with Type 2 Diabetes and will take place from midday to 12.50pm on 16 November in the venue’s Keynote Theatre.
The session will feature contributions from the DWELL Lead Partner Alice Chapman-Hatchett of the Health and Europe Centre, DWELL Programme Lead Julie Webster of Medway Community Healthcare and Professor Eleni Hatzidimitriadou of Canterbury Christ Church University.
