Type 2 conversation map group education
Discussion of the diabetes journey around two maps,
On the Road to Better Managing Your Diabetes
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 collaborationâ??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.
