This useful, practical workshop addresses one of the most challenging, possibly overlooked, areas in diabetes care - how to support people with their emotional as well as physical health.  Diabetes can have a profound effect on emotions, both in the short and long term, and can lead to difficulties in self-care as well as interactions and engagements with health professionals and others providing care. Conversely, experiencing difficult emotions and coinciding mental health challenges and diagnoses can make living with diabetes much more burdensome.  Health professionals often say they feel ill-equipped to deal with emotional issues in diabetes clinical situations, or to pro-actively assess these

This workshop supports participants to gain more practical knowledge of diabetes and emotions, by describing and exploring the different aspects through our always-appreciated practical and interactive activities. Uniquely, we also present and teach ways to assess and monitor emotional health, most importantly to the advantage of individual people in day to day clinical encounters, and also in your clinic population. We explore which tools to use and how they can enhance your clinical practice and evidence base

Participants will leave with new knowledge and confidence to manage emotional aspects of  diabetes and an action plan to incorporate emotional care equally with physical care. As with all Successful Diabetes workshops, they will have participated in an enjoyable learning experience provided by experts in diabetes, education and facilitation

Workshop Structure

This is a one-day workshop, running from 9.30am to 4.30pm. Participants can include any diabetes team members who regularly consult with adults with diabetes and those who have responsibility for audit, assessment and research. Its aim is to provide evidence-based, practical skills to use in consultations about emotional health.

The workshop facilitators are Rosie Walker, Director, Successful Diabetes and Dr Keith Meadows, Health Psychologist and CEO, Health Outcomes Insights Ltd. Both are highly experienced in, and committed to, the delivery of emotional care and assessing emotional health. The workshop is based on, and will feature, first-hand testimony and experiences of people living with diabetes.  The workshop will also showcase and refer to the Diabetes UK's online resource, 'Diabetes and emotional health: a practical guide for healthcare professionals supporting people with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes'. 

Workshop Costs (for up to 25 participants in the UK)

This workshop costs £2500, including all facilitator costs and travel and excluding venue and equipment, refreshments and participant attendance and expenses.

This workshop automatically includes take-home resources and a certificate of attendance

Encouraging Attendance at Type 2 Diabetes Education

Welcome to everything you need to know about commissioning this topical and important workshop!

Each participant will also automatically receive SD's certificate of attendance, either in hard copy or electronically - or both if you wish!

This unique workshop addresses one of the most pressing needs in diabetes care - how to encourage and support people who are referred to Type 2 diabetes education programmes, to attend them.  National figures suggest that currently only approximately 10% of those referred attend, and the literature concerning the reasons why is growing. This workshop will help you to close the referral-attendance gap!

The workshop is for any members of staff who are in contact with people at the time of their diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes and subsequent referral to their local education programme. This means most particularly GPs and Practice Nurses, but could also include clinical and administrative support staff and specialists, including Dietitians and Podiatrists.  There is important learning for everyone in this workshop!

The workshop is supported by materials, references and resources and is fully interactive and learner-centred. This means, for example, that participants are encouraged to explore their own styles of referrals and generate and practice personal ways of translating messages from the literature around barriers to attendance into their own consulting style and timings.

‘Encouraging Attendance’ has already been shown to improve attendance to over 50% in areas which have commissioned it as part of their efforts to focus on Type 2 diabetes education.  It was originally developed as a 3-hour session, but can be offered in timings to suit your needs from 2 hours upwards.  The workshop has also been translated in one area, into an interactive Webinar so that staff can access it at a convenient time and place.  Whatever the timings or the means of learning you choose to commission, it is enjoyable, engaging, and above all, effective in enabling more people to reap the benefits of local education programmes

 

Workshop Structure

In usual Successful Diabetes style, this is an interactive, learner-centred workshop which can incorporate locally-desired outcomes. We will work with you to create the design, timings and outcomes you wish for and deliver it promptly and effectively
