Part of the evidence presented to the APPG came from the Our Diabetes tweet chat back in August hosted by Adrian Sanders MP (chair of the APPG) with the help of JDRF UK.
Four questions were asked:
Question 1: Where do you currently look for advice & support to help you self-manage your diabetes?
Question 2: What gaps are there in the current provision of education? What other training & support would you or your family find useful?
Question 3: How should education and support best be delivered and by who?
Question 4: How confident do you feel that you know what diabetes education and support is available to you – both locally and nationally?
A summary of the discussion provided to the APPG can be viewed here and a full transcript of the chat is also available.A lively discussion ensued with over 80 people getting involved. If you were one of those people I'd like to thank you for contributing to such an important subject.
