New diabetes video resources for patients
The online medical learning company The Sound Doctor has launched a new diabetes library which adds to its existing website-based collection of short films for patients.
The new library adds over 60 new films focused on diabetes and includes more culturally diverse material, top tips from patients and consultants and new animations. The films feature interviews with patients from around the country and including comments from leading diabetes specialists from Diabetes UK and the Leicester Diabetes Centre.
A number of Clinical Commissioning Groups including Castle Point and Rochford, Basildon and Brentwood, North East Essex, Wolverhampton, and Barnsley have already signed up for the new resources.
James Kingsland, President of the National Association of Primary Care, said: "The Sound Doctor is the optimum current IT support programme for enhancing patient empowerment and understanding of their long-term condition, and the introduction of this new diabetes library has further strengthened this status."
Co-founder of The Sound Doctor, Rosie Runciman, agreed: "Our objective is to become pivotal for the improvement of self-care for patients with diabetes as an integral part of care pathway redesign. By providing patients with detailed, accessible and easily comprehendible online information, the overall management of their illness becomes more effective and efficient."
