This is a blog about our work on diabetes and eye care in Keighley, West Yorkshire. We want to reduce the number of people who lose their sight as a result of diabetes. It is a joint project between RNIB and Airedale, Bradford and Leeds PCT. We are designing and developing 5 Key Messages and a self-care document. The blog is informal and expresses personal opinions. These opinions do not represent the opinions of RNIB or Airedale, Bradford and Leeds PCT.
It is an exciting week, as we test the prototypes of a self-care document. The prototypes were created at a workshop held in March.
Eleven health and social care practitioners developed the prototypes based on the findings of research with people with diabetes and members of the wider community.
This is what they came up with:
Working with an artist and creative practitioner, these instant prototypes were mocked up into proper documents. We are now taking them round health practitioners and patient focus groups for feedback. From that feedback we will create the final version.
