A leader in diabetes care for over 90 years, Lilly Diabetes provides treatment options and resources for people facing the challenges of diabetes. Healthy Interactions developed and launched an international Diabetes Conversations programme that is sponsored by Lilly. The programme is designed to assist healthcare professionals in helping people with diabetes achieve greater success. It features the Conversation Map™ education tools and provides free training and other valuable resources to healthcare professionals so they can help people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes become more engaged and involved in learning how to better manage the disease.
Conversation Map™ education tools – a core component of the Diabetes Conversations programme – allows educators to facilitate dynamic, interactive group discussions of up to 10 participants at once. The tools were designed to be efficient and may be more cost-effective.
Conversation Map™ education tools are designed to be outcomes-driven and flexible. They are built on a foundation of evidence-based education principles and clinical guidelines that include the International Standards for Diabetes Education published by the International Diabetes Federation.
Conversation Map™ education tools, which are used in more than 120 countries in more than 35 languages, can be adapted by institutions ranging from small, neighbourhood clinics to large, regional hospitals or centres, and can be integrated into existing support programmes at any stage of diabetes management.
Conversation Map™ facilitators from all over the world talk about using the Map tools as part of the Diabetes Conversations programme.
