Diabetes structured education: using technology to transform care

Lucy Jones Clinical director, Oviva UK, London, England

Type 2 diabetes structured education programmes are recommended for all newly diagnosed patients to support diabetes self-management. Most patients are referred to a group-based, classroom-style programme, but such face-to-face interventions are not always accessible or cost-effective at scale. Digital behaviour change interventions have emerged as accessible, effective alternatives to face-to-face interventions. The 12-week education, lifestyle and behaviour change intervention delivered remotely by registered dietitians using telephone/video calls or text messaging coaching via the programme app presented here aims to provide patients with the knowledge, skills and confidence to achieve long term self-management.
