Hypo Awareness Week - registration is open
Thank you to those of you who have already expressed an interest in our first ever national Hypo Awareness Week. It is scheduled to run from Monday 13th to Sunday 19th of August and aims to raise awareness and, in turn, reduce incidents of hypoglycaemia in secondary care.
The timeframe has been designed to coincide with the launch of the NHS Diabetes hypo e-learning module in July and to help prepare hospital teams for the 2012 National Diabetes Inpatient Audit in September.
We are encouraging trusts in England to hold activities and training, ensure they have fully-stocked hypo kits on their wards and that all staff (including receptionists) are aware of the symptoms of a hypo and what to do in the event of one.
Hypo Week Pack
A pack of materials is being compiled and will be sent to trusts electronically. To help you prepare, we can now reveal the contents of the pack:
- Instruction sheet tips about how to run the week
- Hypo symptoms factsheet
- Hypo e-learning module promotional card
- Press release template
- Article for internal newsletter and website
- Hypo algorithm
- Hypo box content list
- Case study
receive the pack and more updates, complete our quick and easy registration form here.
We will be sending weekly updates to registered participants.
Dont miss your opportunity to get involved in an initiative which aims to bring awareness of diabetes and hypos to your hospital.
