REPORT

An amazing amount gets done each year now with World

Diabetes Day. This is a brief look at what happened this year.

In fine shape

Z

oe Morris took part in a

session with BD, makers

of disposable injections

and insulin pen needles,

regarding shaping the

company's Starter Programme for

people with Type 1 diabetes. She says,

"BD's Diabetes Care team kindly invited

myself, along with several other diabetics

within the community and a number of

healthcare professionals, to discuss and

review their new injection starter kit and

initiation programme. It was a brilliant

event because it offered us the chance

to see the changes that are being made

from the diabetes care team, whose aim

is for all Type 1 diabetics to have access

to the relevant equipment and information

to manage their Type 1 diabetes safely

upon their diagnosis."

In addition to diet, insulin and physical

activity, an optimal injection technique is

essential for better diabetes management.

The starter pack contains a number

of guides on the correct ways of injecting

insulin, the places to inject and also a

template to show how much of a gap is

required between each dose of insulin.

Explaining about the event, Chris

Maguire, Marketing Manager BD Diabetes

Care UK & Ireland, said, "At BD we want

to make sure that any of the resources we

produce have been reviewed by people

from the diabetes community first. This

is to make sure that they are useful and

helpful and can make a difference to

people's care. This was a fantastic event

and we had amazing feedback on our

starter kits and education programme.

We have now launched this to diabetes

clinics across the country and hope they

find it as positive as those who attended

the event did."
