My Diabetes My Way

My Diabetes My Way is the NHS Scotland interactive diabetes website to help support people who have diabetes and their family or friends. People wanting to find out more about diabetes will find leaflets, videos, educational tools and games containing information about diabetes. My Diabetes My Way is now used by nearly 10,000 patients across Scotland who access their records online to help them manage their diabetes. Recent analyses have shown that measures such as HbA1c, weight and blood pressure improve following interaction with My Diabetes My Way and that patients report improved knowledge and motivation.

 

Encourage your patients to sign up for this service through the website or users of SCI-Diabetes can register patients for My Diabetes My Way directly as shown in this video guide. The My Diabetes My Way team can provide practices with advertising materials for patients, further information on the website and provide the MCN reports on the number of patients who are registered and actively using My Diabetes My Way.
