ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
How has COVID-19 changed the lives of people with diabetes and how can healthcare professionals maintain contact and offer support?
During Mental Health Week, Diabetes Professional Care will host a webinar focusing on psychological consequences of COVID-19 for people with diabetes. Since the lockdown, professionals working in diabetes are increasingly using virtual technology to consult with their patients. We will discuss the benefits and challenges of this new way of working, which is certain to continue as an important option for connecting with people in the future.
Living in enforced isolation may have consequences of particular importance for people with diabetes, especially those prone to anxiety or depression. We will hear the stories of the diabetes community and their thoughts of how to adapt to life after COVID.
