DESMOND Diabetes Education in Qatar

The collaboration between Hamad Medical Corporation and DESMOND UK has enabled the DESMOND education programme for people with Type 2 diabetes to be adapted for the population in Qatar, so that it meets their cultural and specific needs. The educators readily embraced the training, delivery and evaluation of the programme. The feedback

from those individuals with diabetes and their carers who have attended has been extremely positive and beneficial. By implementing DESMOND, patients and educators develop the necessary diabetes self-management knowledge and skills, which in turn creates a culture where the responsibility of living with and managing diabetes is shared.
