Desmond Free Programme for Diabetes

Real life skills for managing diabetes

The Desmond programme, short for Diabetes Education Self-Management for Ongoing and Newly Diagnosed, is delivered by registered health care professionals trained to guide participants to take control of their diabetes.

This programme is the only evidence-based education programme for people with type two diabetes in NZ which emphasises that their most valuable health resource is themselves.

Participants can expect to learn real life skills for managing diabetes across many areas such as food choices, physical activity, diabetes distress and medications.
