Type 1 Bootcamp
Your ultimate Type 1 Action Plan is here!
Ever been to one of those boring diabetes programs that never seemed to end?
Ever sat there and laughed as you were given advice that would never work in the real world?
Ever wanted to say - “Yeah that’s great in theory – but what about when...”
Those days are over with the launch of Type 1 Bootcamp!
T1 Bootcamp is our brand-new type 1 masterclass, developed by the passionate team at the Family Centre. Delivered in a face-to-face setting, T1 Bootcamp supports you with a hands-on learning experience, alongside other people living with type 1.
The course provides you with the latest clinical advice and shows you how to put this advice into action, making the day to day living with type 1 easier to manage. In addition to the best clinical advice, you'll hear from people living with type 1 about what it’s like to apply this advice in the real world, and benefit from the tips and tricks they've learned over their life with type 1.
Whether you embrace type 1 technology, are curious about switching to pumps or CGM, or prefer to manage with daily injections, T1 Bootcamp has you covered. The course is packed full of practical tips, tricks, and the latest advice that you need to know to take control of your diabetes management, so it doesn't take control of your life!
T1 Bootcamp Curriculum:
Day 1: We deep dive into the core of type 1 diabetes management; insulin, carbohydrate counting and how to tailor insulin doses to match your meals. We’ll make sure you have the essential info to manage insulin and food with confidence.
Day 2: We take what you have learnt week 1 and translate it into real life. Whether it is exercising without a hypo, eating out without a blood glucose tsunami, or having a glass or two of wine without fear, you will graduate Bootcamp feeling more competent and confident!
