The self-management programme (SMP) is a seven week self-management course for people who live with Type 2 diabetes.
It is facilitated by two trained tutors, a healthcare professional and a lay tutor who lives with this 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)
Thursday 7 August - Thursday 18 September
