In November 2016 Chief Executive Steve Crew announced the launch of a comprehensive online support and self-management toolkit, to help address the nation’s fastest-growing health crisis.
The Diabetes New Zealand Take Control Toolkit is a range of more than 60 online materials in downloadable print or video formats, that Diabetes NZ members anywhere in the country can access, offering them advice and information across three important categories – Food & Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Health & Wellbeing.
A select pilot group of people with diabetes were the first to use the Take Control Toolkit, and the results have been encouraging, Crew says.
“Our core focus is on supporting people with diabetes, to help empower them to live well, and encourage them to self-manage their condition. We have seen real change in the trailblazers using the Take Control Toolkit and are confident that we can help people to help themselves, and live well with their diabetes.”
