Event description:

DESMOND (Diabetes Education and Self-Management for Ongoing and Newly Diagnosed) is a FREE one-day program that puts you in control.

The program recognises that there is no 'one size fits all' approach to diabetes management. It is intended to provide you with a welcoming and non-judgemental space where you can plan how you would like to manage your diabetes.

DESMOND

DESMOND can help you to: 

  • develop a better understanding of diabetes
  • lower your HbA1c
  • improve your physical activity levels
  • take steps to manage your weight
  • improve your overall health
  • develop a plan and set personal goals

DESMOND focuses on providing you with practical skills for managing type 2 diabetes. Invest 6 hours of your time today for better health tomorrow.

It is delivered by specially trained DESMOND educators who will help you to improve your self-management by improving your knowledge and understanding of your condition. Throughout the program you will discuss the latest information and strategies on healthy food choices, physical activity, blood glucose monitoring, medication management and personal goal setting.

You will be able to consider strategies you might like to adopt or changes you might be ready to make.

The program is built around group activities, with participants sharing experiences and talking about what type 2 diabetes means to them. However if you don't like the idea of sharing your experiences, you won't be forced to contribute.

You will also have the chance to speak to a diabetes educator by yourself if you need to. At the end of the sessions, participants will have information to take home for reference.
