Discovering Diabetes Program Manual - Self-Care Type 1 Type 2 Canada

The Discovering Diabetes™ program includes:

  • a program manual which guides the set up of your diabetes education program from vision to implementation to evaluation.
  • a standardized, yet flexible diabetes education curriculum
  • the Discovering Diabetes™ food and blood sugar record, to guide patients in their care
  • having clients Discover how to have diabetes fit into their REAL life
  • consistent messaging between educators and diabetes education programs
  • support and advice from diabetes educators using the curriculum
  • marketing tips on how to fill your classes with students


Benefits to using this curriculum include:

  • Addressing Multiple Learning Styles: HEARING your instruction for auditory learners, SEEING the slides and myth book for visual learners, and HANDS-ON using of the myth book and the Discovery record for kinesthetic learners.
  • Active Participation: The curriculum is linked to pages in the myth book and encourages active participation and learning.
  • Consistent Content and Terminology: Inconsistent messaging and use of non-standardized or high grade-level reading teaching tools is common and can be overwhelming and confusing to people with diabetes.

Inconsistent or conflicting information makes learning very difficult for non-medical people, poor readers or English as a second language clients to understand.

The Discovering Diabetes™ curriculum is taught as 4- 2 hour classes and uses the Myth Books and Tool of Discovery to help clients discover how diabetes works inside them.

Includes Professional Quality Slides

Each slide has a different key diabetes message with formatting consistency and Myth Book page indicator. Each curriculum package comes with a digital file of the 100+ high-quality PowerPoint™ slides in either the Original or Indigenous version.

Slides can be used in a variety of ways and in a variety of practice settings in order to best meet your client’s learning needs.
