MyDESMOND is an interactive digital platform for people with type 2 diabetes designed to support and educate them to better self-manage their condition.
Based on the NICE-approved DESMOND self-management education, MyDESMOND provides key educational material through videos, activities and quizzes as well as opportunities for people with type 2 diabetes to speak with others from across the UK and Ireland to share ideas and gain peer support.
Additionally, Ask the Expert and technical support is provided by the designers from the multidisciplinary team at the Leicester Diabetes Centre.
MyDESMOND can be used as a standalone programme for those unable to attend virtual or face to face groups, or can aid self-management before, during and after attendance at group-based education sessions such as X-PERT or Diabetes Awareness session.
MyDESMOND is now available across Wales as a result of funding from the All Wales Diabetes Implementation group.
Anyone with type 2 diabetes can sign up by visiting mydesmond.wales and completing the access request form.
