Patient Activation As A Concept in Diabetes Care Pathways

Dr Ollie Hart (Sheffield GP and someone influential in the founding of Move More Sheffield) will be talking about the importance of patient activation in diabetes care.

Whilst some patients take an active lead in their own care (and people coming to meetings like this certainly are taking that active step), many people don't know how to, or don't believe they have a role in their own care.

Ollie will talk about how important patient activation is in helping people affected by diabetes in managing their condition more effectively.

 

Houlden Hall is next to the Cathedreal Church of St Marie on Norfolk Row, Sheffield.  The door is to the left of the church and the top buzzer is for Houlden Hall - though we usually have a greeter on the door. 

Meetings are a great place for you to find out more information about diabetes, learn more about the Sheffield Group, and for you to meet other people with diabetes and benefit from their experiences.

You can find us on Norfolk Row, entry by the green door next to St Marie's Church and opposite Vero Gusto.  The meetings are on the first floor (accessible by lift).  Doors are open from 7pm for refreshments and mingling before the meeting starts at 7:30pm.  We aim to finish by 9pm!
