SANOFI

CARES

French pharmaceutical company

(and insulin provider) Sanofi is to

fund key diabetes training to care

home staff to help improve health

outcomes.

It is thought 450,000 people

currently reside in care homes,

with approximately a quarter of

those with diabetes. People with

diabetes in care homes can be at a

higher risk of hospitalisation and

develop other health concerns

if their diabetes is not managed

appropriately.

Sanofi has partnered with

award-winning healthcare

professional training organisation

Eden, based at the Leicester

Diabetes Centre, to provide a

virtual education programme

called Sanofi Cares. The aim

is to educate and improve the

knowledge and confidence of care

home staff to effectively manage

people with diabetes. It will be

delivered through E-Learning

with additional mentoring support

and is available for staff in care

and community homes, including

registered nurses and nonregistered

practitioners, such as

HCAs and Social Care staff.

It is hoped that by providing

a competency-based consistent

education programme across

a platform for care home staff

and community care teams

across the UK, Sanofi can help

standardise knowledge and care

across the country for people

living with diabetes in care homes.

The blended training includes

an introduction to diabetes,

care planning and improving

the quality of life and wellbeing

among those with the condition.

Sessions will focus on key subjects

such as foot care, complications,

blood glucose monitoring, and

care planning.

SCRAP BMI?

With calls for the Body Mass Index

(BMI) to be scrapped, one woman

shares her experience of being

refused treatment for an eating

disorder because her BMI wasn't

considered to be low enough.

Victoria Spence (pictured) tells the

BBC how she had to seek private

treatment to get on the road to

recovery after a doctor told her she

had more weight to lose before being

eligible for treatment.

WEIGHTY MATTERS

A report by the Organisation for the Review of Care and Health Apps

(ORCHA) with the British Dietetic Association (BDA) will help dietitians

and health and care professionals wanting safe and effective health

apps to support people in managing their weight. The report outlines

the risks and opportunities offered by digital health and includes the

top 10 recommended weight management apps.

While millions of 'diet' apps are available, the market is not

regulated. Out of 379 diet and weight management apps reviewed by

ORCHA, the average score is 56%; however, a score of at least 65% is

needed to indicate the app has met sufficient relevant health, security

and usability standards. Many of the apps reviewed and available to

download in app stores have the potential to harm users.

The top-flight apps are achieving impressive ORCHA scores - My

Diabetes, My Way, Second Nature and My Desmond, in the top three

positions, are recommended as achieving high scores across safety,

security and useability.

Use of apps throughout the healthcare sector has increased

dramatically during the Covid-19 pandemic. ORCHA provides app

libraries to the NHS in 50% of regions and saw a 180% growth in visits

to its libraries between January and May 2020 across all its services.

Since the start of lockdown there has been a 25% rise in daily health

app downloads by consumers, increasing from 4 to 5 million every day.
