CODE allows people with diabetes to talk in a supportive atmosphere about their own diabetes for the benefit of everyone in the group. Time is allocated during the programme for problem solving, feedback on diabetes self management behaviours and goal settling. Diabetes knowledge and skills are reinforced and the responsibility for the personal self management of diabetes is gradually strengthened.
Topics covered in CODE include diabetes explained, risk factors, signs and symptoms, healthy eating, physical activity, personal goal setting, complications and the necessity of regular follow up and the importance of optimal diabetes control. The six month session looks at the review of achievements and personal goal setting. Our flexible approach allows the sessions to be tailored to meet the self identified needs of each group.
