A key part of the DESMOND course is when DESMOND Educators work with patients to plot their own biomedical results and depression score onto a health profile. This information is then used to help patients complete a self management plan to work on after they leave the course.
Patients are encouraged to share this plan with their surgery diabetes team and are supplied with additional blank health profiles and self management plans for future use.
We've put the DESMOND Health Profile and Self Management Plan together into a poster format. The poster is intended to be used on surgery walls to act as a reminder to both the diabetes surgery team, and patients, who have attended DESMOND, to discuss progress with their self management plan and the impact on their health profile.
