You can choose to interact with Oviva digitally using our online resources and app or choose an offline programme using phone calls and printed materials/DVD content. The patient is in control of how they interact with their personal dietitian and can switch between the methods of interaction throughout the programme depending on their needs.
People with diabetes need effective patient education to enable them to manage their diabetes on a day-to-day basis.
“Whilst I was a little apprehensive about going to a group course, I found hearing about diabetes with others who were like me was really helpful. Lots of what I learnt I was able to do straight away. I’m so glad I went. ”
