Self-care is an integral part of daily life with people taking responsibility for their own health and wellbeing with support from all those involved in their care.
Self-care includes things you do each day to keep fit, maintain good physical and mental health, prevent illness or accidents and deal effectively with the management of diabetes to reduce the risk of short and long-term complications.
People living with long-term conditions can benefit enormously if they receive individualised and appropriate self-care diabetes education and support. They can live longer, experience less pain, anxiety, depression, fatigue, have a better quality of life and be more active and independent.
This category recognises that programmes designed specifically to improve self-care management for people with diabetes will not only improve healthcare outcomes and wellbeing but will also empower people to maximise their self-care behaviour and as a consequence will reduce the incidence and costs of diabetic complications.
