Taking action for your health and wellbeing
This year our theme is ‘Taking action for your Health and Wellbeing’. We are encouraging the general community to check their risk for type 2 diabetes through the dissemination of the AUSDRISK tool, and to refer to the Diabetes SA website for information about the prevention of the condition.
The Burden of Diabetes in Australia: It’s Time for More Action report (July 2018) noted that there were ‘significant deficiencies in important routine checks for many people with diabetes’. This has never been more evident in recent months with the COVID-19 situation, where reportedly between 30-40% of people have not followed up with important checks.
This year for National Diabetes Week we have considered the current COVID-19 situation and restrictions and we will be offering this year’s seminar as a live webinar. We have invited three experts to share their knowledge at our annual NDW event. We will also be distributing campaign packs to GP practices, pharmacies, and hospitals to help drive the message of ‘Taking action for your Health and Wellbeing’.
Diabetes self-management can be complex, understanding what checks are required, why and when. Preventing and managing complications is so important. Discuss risks and early detection benefits with family, set some dates in your diary for your health checks, and set aside some time to attend our webinar.
It’s all free and a worthwhile investment of your time.
