Type 1: Level 2: Ongoing education

Children and young people with type 1 diabetes

The nature of clinic attendance for children and young people with type 1 diabetes ensures regular, frequent contact with the health care team. Level 2 education is, to date, normally conducted on a one-to-one basis according to each family's needs.

Adults with type 1 diabetes

Ongoing education is often delivered on a one to one basis as people request specific support in lifestyle issues.

The interactive diabetes website My Diabetes My Way hosts a variety of educational resources to support ongoing education.

The self management website My Condition My Life also hosts a variety of resources for people living with a long term condition.

Diabetes UK provide a variety of resources.

Education is presented by the Managed Clinical Network (MCN) in each Health Board.
