KnowDiabetes Corporate Wellness Programs focuses on employers and employess individual preferences and priorities.

Education to support self management is an integral part of diabetes care. Credentialled Diabetes Educators (CDE) play a major role in self-empowering people with diabetes by focussing on an individual’s needs, providing knowledge, motivation & support.

“KnowDiabetes coaching enables organisations to support their customers through one-on-one sessions delivered remotely by CDE”.

Diabetes is 24×7 for 365 days a year. Never takes a vacation.
Individuals often feel the need for support in-between consultations

“KnowDiabetes coaching complements the face-to-face care by supporting self-management”.

Often their is an assumption that the health professionals guidance during face-to-face consultation was clear, does not conflict with advice of others, and that the individual recalls the instructions clearly.

“KnowDiabetes Coaching supports collaborative-decision making reinforcing and clarifying the key messages taking into account the individuals preferences & priorities”.

Health literacy plays an important role in enabling effective partnerships. Health literacy is about how people understand information about health and health care and how they apply that information to their lives, use it to make decisions and act on it.

“KnowDiabetes Coaching uses the power of CDE to deliver care,
understand health info and help improve the health of individuals.”.

Person centered care includes respect, emotional support, information and communication, continuity and transition care coordination and access to care

“KnowDiabetes Coaching empowers individuals using the person centered care delivered by CDEs on our digital platform”.

How it works

‘Information – motivation – behavioural skills model’

Information is a prerequisite for changing behaviour, but in itself is insufficient to achieve change. MOTIVATION and BEHAVIOURAL skills are critical determinants and are independent of behaviour change

“KnowDiabetes Corporate Wellness Program is delivered by a team of Diabetes Experts.
DE’s are well trained and they invest their time and efforts on providing motivational and behavioural skills to achieve health goals.”
