Type 2 conversation map group education


Discussion of the diabetes journey around two maps, On the Road to Better Managing Your Diabetes and Diabetes and Healthy Eating is facilitated by a Central London Community Healthcare (CLCH) dietician in two two hour sessions.

The Conversation Map program is a patient-centered, innovative tool for diabetes education developed in collaboration with the American Diabetes Association.

Unlike more traditional, lecture-based approaches to learning, Conversation Map sessions are centered around interaction and collaborationĂ¢??among patients, materials, and the facilitator.

Guided by certified facilitators, the program uses a stimulating 3-foot by 5-foot map visual to engage groups of 3 to 10 patients in a friendly, open environment. By being personally involved in the learning process, patients are able to discover solutions on their own and use their newfound knowledge to make positive lifestyle changes.
