At a glance factsheet: Sources of information and education for people with diabetes to support remote consulting

Jane Diggle
To continue providing care and support for people with diabetes during the COVID-19 restrictions, many practices are conducting diabetes reviews remotely. Access to online support, education and resources is important while social distancing measures are in place and diabetes reviews are predominantly held remotely. Possibilities for making better use of technology and digital online resources beyond the COVID-19 pandemic may open up.
Delivering diabetes care while minimising face-to-face contact inevitably means greater reliance on technology, including telephone and video consultations. In helping both the person with diabetes and the healthcare professional prepare for a remote consultation, and to provide robust information and support after a virtual interaction, quick and easy access to reliable sources of information that can be shared is key.
This factsheet provides links to resources for people with diabetes that support remote consulting for routine diabetes reviews.
