Not all DAFNE Graduates achieve the anticipated biomedical benefit from DAFNE. We will develop and pilot an intervention, incorporating findings from the Psychosocial study, for those DAFNE Graduates needing additional input.
Intervention: Post DAFNE course designed to support those with continued problems with hypoglycaemia by improving awareness of symptoms and strategies for avoidance. The course will be educator led and will be designed to help patients recognise and modify any unhelpful cognition/behaviours which may impede improvement.
4 courses to run: 2 courses at King's College London and 2 at Sheffield
Each course is held over 6 weeks, with four x one day per week educational sessions with additional telephone contacts.
Course curriculum has now been developed.
Educator training in early 2012
Courses to be run Spring 2012
Results expected Autumn 2012
