Self management programme
The Self Management Programme (SMP) is a seven week self-management course for people who live with diabetes type 2.
It is facilitated by two trained tutors, a health care professional and a lay tutor who lives with the long term condition.
The Self Management Programme helps people to
• Gain new skills and knowledge (e.g. managing pain and fatigue, goal-setting, pacing themselves)
• Increase their confidence to manage their condition better (through action planning and problem-solving as a group)
• Find new ways to reduce the effects their condition has on their life (through sharing experiences and tips with each other, and seeing others like themselves managing well).
