Chapter 6: Diabetes Education in children and adolescents
View this email in your browser
,
Dear Members,
Dear Friends,

"The diabetic who knows the most, lives the longest." Prof. Elliot P. Joslin (the author of the quote) knew this more than 70 years ago and this attitude guides the how we treat diabetes today. ISPAD shares this philosophy and promotes diabetes education in people with diabetes of all ages – including the youngest, adolescents, and of course their families. Education is not only the key to successful management of diabetes; successful diabetes psycho-education can also empower and support patients and their families in their daily lives.

ISPAD states that age-appropriate, quality-assured, structured diabetes education needs to be available to all young people with diabetes and their caregivers to maximize the effectiveness of their diabetes treatment, including the use of new diabetes technologies as they become available. Learn how it should be organized and what the principles should be, in the ISPAD Clinical Guidelines 2018 here.

In comparison to the older versions of the guidelines (2014), the universal principles guiding diabetes education remain essentially unchanged. Although, the authors of this revision have explored the evidence for the role of digital technologies in supporting diabetes self-management. This is an important addition to the guidelines as this is a rapidly changing area providing opportunities to utilise technologies to assist people to acquire knowledge, confidence and practical diabetes self-management skills.

See the presentation about the novel tools for diabetes education of healthcare professionals and patients here. Check also how patients and their families can be empowered to become coaches and educators – an experience from rural India here.
