Make Type 2 Diabetes Different aims to empower people with type 2 diabetes to make small changes to their lives to help them regain control of their condition.
This webpage is intended to provide UK healthcare professionals with
information and tools to help you make type 2 diabetes different by
addressing the emotional impact and applying motivational interviewing
techniques during your consultations.
The Make Type 2 Diabetes Different campaign and the Make Type 2 Diabetes Different expert steering committee were initiated, organised and funded by Novo Nordisk. All steering committee members were paid for their involvement in the campaign.
Have you found that, for some people living with type 2 diabetes, offering advice about what lifestyle changes they should make does not necessarily lead to behaviour change? If so, motivational interviewing could help. This technique focuses on helping people with type 2 diabetes assess for themselves what is possible, and what changes they can make.
Dr Jen Bateman, Jan Procter-King and Dr Amir Khan were paid by Novo Nordisk for their input into the development of the resources on this webpage.
