Stradbally Pre-Diabetes & Type 2 Education (Code)
November 20, 2018 @ 10:45 am - 1:00 pm
Structured education course for Pre-diabetes & Type 2
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 Diabetes Ireland, Regional Development Officer Jenny Dunbar and consists of 4 sessions of 2 hours duration. The first 3 sessions take place over 3 consecutive weeks.
Final Review Meeting
This review session takes place six months after the start date.
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.
Pre-booking is essential and all 4 sessions need attendance
