Type 2: Level 1: Education to support people newly diagnosed

Adults with type 2 diabetes

At diagnosis of type 2 diabetes, people are normally supported by members of the primary health care team and group education is reserved for consolidating knowledge and skills some time after the diagnosis is made. People living within an institutional setting are supported on a one to one by health care professionals.

Group education courses designed to support people as early as possible from diagnosis are addressed under type 2 diabetes, level 3. Courses are presented by Managed Clinical Network (MCN) in each Health Board. Programmes that meet essential criteria of structured patient education have an * beside the programme title.
