The Language Matters Diabetes
movement - NHS guidance for
healthcare professionals when talking to
their patients - has taken off around the
world, making it available to billions of
people. The guidance helps healthcare
teams use constructive terminology in
their own regions providing practical
examples of language that will encourage
positive interactions with people living
with diabetes and subsequently positive
outcomes - and the original NHS
guidance is now joined by guides for
Latin America and India. With input by
Professor Partha Kar, National Specialty
Advisor for Diabetes at NHS England,

together on one website. View the free
resources, practical examples and tips for
more healthy and positive communication
between HCPs and people living with
diabetes on its website.

more personal recommendations for the
