CODE aims to deliver general information about diabetes self-management in a local community group setting. The groups are kept to small numbers (11-16) allowing people to talk in a supportive, non-judgemental environment about their own diabetes. Time is allocated during the programme for problem solving, people’s 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. Diabetes is very much a personal condition with no one ideal plan that suits everyone.
The programme is facilitated by a diabetes nurse or dietitian and consists of 4 sessions of 2 hours duration each and a phone call at week 10. The first 3 sessions take place over 3 consecutive weeks and the final session takes place six months after the start date. CODE is funded by Diabetes Ireland and the HSE, therefore free of charge to attendees.
The sixth month session is a review of achievements and personal goals that were set and new goals are considered. Our flexible approach allows the sessions to be tailored to meet the self-identified needs of each individual.
