Best initiative supporting self-care
This award recognises that improved self care is both empowering to patients, and reduces the incidence and costs of complications associated with diabetes.
Winner: Co-creating Health by Whittington Health
Co-creating Health aims to transform the patientclinician interaction into a collaborative partnership and to transform healthcare for people with long-term conditions by making self-management an integral part of care. At every stage of its development patients have been fully involved and are participating in a self-management programme, building skills to self-manage. Clinicians are undertaking an advanced development programme to develop consultation skills. Services are being improved to support self-management, and skills and learning are being spread and shared.
Second place: Diabetes Education through Adult Learning (DEAL) by St Helens & Knowsley
DEAL addresses the needs of all people with diabetes, not just selected groups, and it has been incorporated into routine care with no additional resources. DEAL is a suite of seven learner-centred programmes of structured patient education developed in partnership with people with diabetes, underpinned by the principles that learning is experiential, interactive, refl ective and collaborative. Patients and their carers are empowered to manage their diabetes by giving them the confi dence and the skills to do so.
Third place: KICk-OFF by Sheffield Childrens NHS Foundation Trust
The KICk-OFF course is the first intensive, structured, self-management education course for adolescents with Type I diabetes. This five-day course is taught to groups of children aged 11-13 and 14-16 years. Reviewed by experts in education it has been shown to improve quality of life and confi dence in managing diabetes for both the children who participated and their parents. A teaching skills course for healthcare professionals who teach children with diabetes demonstrates educational theory and provides effective feedback on how to deliver effective education with the aim of raising the standard of all paediatric diabetes education across the UK.
