Diabetes made simple

Novo nordisk has many incredible resources to help patients and healthcare providers learn/teach about diabetes. This is one of my personal favorite teaching materials for a new diabetes diagnosis. To view, click  here.

By going onto their website, you can find many other fun, colorful, child friendly resources that are free and ready to print (click here to view). Not only do they have information for the patients/families, they also have a guide for healthcare professionals on how to provide this life changing information. This guide for healthcare professionals not only breaks down key messages to give the child but also key messages to give the child’s family/caregiver when addressing various topics.  All of these resources on their webpage are available in English, French, Spanish, Swahili, and Amharic.

I am a huge fan of resources like these that are free and easily accessible for patients, families, and healthcare providers. I wish I had similar resources for everydiagnosis! Thank you Novo nordisk!

The Teddy Bear Clinic is an opportunity for young patients, their friends, and their families to explore health care experiences and to learn about diabetes and healthy habits.

Children can bring a favorite stuffed animal or get a new bear to care for as they visit each medical station and learn about diabetes and overall health.  At the Teddy Bear Clinic, children are their teddy bear’s doctor. This event includes fun learning activities, crafts, and prizes.
