Empowering Teenagers with High School Education

Summary

This project aimed to provide diabetes education to teenagers in way that promotes empowerment and self-management, and encourages the development of peer support networks. Education sessions were provided every fortnight during term time in a group format with an emphasis on practical learning, discussion and group problem-solving. Empowerment measured via a questionnaire at the beginning and end of each term and HbA1c was found to have reduced in five out of seven students.
