Stanford School of Medicine is sponsoring a free online group workshop that educates two ways - to help diabetes II patients manage their condition, and provide insights that medical professionals can use to help their own patients.
As explained at the Self-Management@Stanford website:
The online workshop will include groups of about 25 U.S. residents with type II diabetes, who will participate using anonymous screen names - and may have other chronic conditions as well as diabetes.
Time and other requirements: Members must have Internet access and be able to use a computer. They can participate in the online exchange at any time during the week, but must agree to spend a total of 2 hours connected to the group site each week for 6 weeks.
Leaders: The workshop group will be led by two trained moderators, one or both of whom will have diabetes.
Content: Members will share experiences, suggestions, and support, and learn about exercise, healthy eating, medication use, communication skills, dealing with emotions, treatment decisions, and problem solving.
Two-Way Learning: Doctors and other health professionals will follow the interchanges to learn what is important to people with diabetes so as to help their own patients manage diabetes & other health problems.
