September 9, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Structured education course for Type 2 & Pre-diabetes
CODE is Diabetes Ireland’s group education programme for people with Type 2 Diabetes or diagnosed Pre-diabetes. CODE aims to deliver general information about diabetes self-management in a local community group setting. CODE allows people with diabetes to talk in a supportive atmosphere about their own diabetes. Time is allocated during the programme for problem solving, feedback on diabetes self management behaviours and goal setting.
The programme is facilitated by Ms. Clair Naughton, Diabetes Nurse Specialist and consists of 4 sessions of 2 hour duration. The first 3 sessions take place over 3 consecutive weeks at the The Building Block, Waterfront House, Bridge St, Sligo, F91 XY2N.
Week 1: Monday 9th September from 6:00pm – 8:30pm
Week 2: Monday 16th September from 6:00pm – 8:00pm
Week 3: Monday 23rd September from 6:00pm – 8:00pm
Week 4: To be confirmed
You are asked to attend all four sessions to get maximum benefit from the course.
CODE is free of charge.
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.
