Free Online Course – Type 2 Diabetes

The MyDiabetesMyWay Scotland and  MyWay Digital Health team, in collaboration with The University of Edinburgh and University of Dundee, are running a 2-day free-to-access eLearning course, Understanding Type 2 Diabetes, on the 28th and 29th of April, 2020! Register here.

Watch our introductory course video below.

Why?

Self-management is of vital importance for people with type 2 diabetes. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, providing face-to-face structured education is difficult if not impossible. Therefore, online solutions can help provide this care remotely. 

What’s the plan?

The course will span 2 days, complete with new video content and interactive quizzes.

Day 1 will focus on what type 2 diabetes is, the complications of diabetes, and sick day guidance in type 2 diabetes.

Day 2 will move on to the management of diabetes, covering weight loss advice, dietary and physical activity advice, discussions on diabetes remission and other treatment options.

These topics will be accompanied by live twitter debates #understandingtype2 monitored by healthcare professionals from the UK including diabetes doctors, diabetes dieticians and diabetes specialist nurses.

Who is the course for?

Delivered in English and available for anyone from across the globe, the course is aimed at people with type 2 diabetes, those who care for them and healthcare professionals who look after people with type 2 diabetes. 

What can I do?

You can take part! Register here and we will keep you posted: https://ut2.mydiabetes.com/

Spread the word! Share this with those in your network you think may be interested. Connect with us onFacebook and Twitter @MyWayDigital using #understandingtype2.

Persimmon’s Charitable Foundation has this week committed to relaunching its Building Futures scheme for 2020. As part of its sponsorship of Team GB, Persimmon will donate more than £1 million to support children in sport, health and education. We are calling on local groups within your area which support children to apply. It can all be done online remotely at www.persimmonhomes.com/building-futures

Community Champions

 Persimmon’s Community Champions initiative has run since 2015 and gives away £64,000 every month in single donations up to the value of £1,000. So far over £3.5 million has been donated in the UK. Persimmon has decided that from April 2020 all funding will go directly to groups supporting the over 70s. However, we need your help to find these groups. If you know of any, can you let them know that funding is available? Again, they can apply online at www.persimmonhomes.com/community-champions
