With you all the way, created by Novo Nordisk, is designed to help healthcare professionals provide children and young people with the necessary knowledge, skills and confidence to successfully manage type 1 diabetes at every stage of life.
The UK has the fifth largest population of children and young people with type 1 diabetes in the world, with 31,000 children with the condition in the UK.
The prevalence of diabetes in children and young people is steadily increasing. Supporting young patients and their families has never been more important.
A source of support
Created alongside a team of UK-based diabetes experts, the With you all the way resources have been developed in-line with recent changes in the clinical management of diabetes and the 2015 NICE guidelines.
The resource kit contains a range of age-specific booklets tailored to individual levels of development and understanding. It is designed to facilitate patient-centred learning and enable children and young people to gradually take charge of their diabetes over time.
You will be able to see which booklets relate to which age group by using the key below.

Goals of diabetes education is a structured education programme, designed to provide an overview of the key facts that your patients should understand as they journey from diagnosis through to transitioning from paediatrics to adult diabetes services.

The Goals of diabetes education materials provided for each age
