Hypo Awareness Week 30 September – 6 October 2019

Although emphasis is towards “health” providers, the organiser of the above is keen for care providers to get involved to raise the awareness of hypoglycaemia. Benefitting both care givers (their confidence in understanding and how to treat) as well as those people at potential risk of experiencing a hypoglycaemic event (an experience to be avoided).
The resources available can support homes to improve understanding amongst staff, residents and families. By making it inclusive, fun and informative care providers can potentially improve awareness; perhaps resulting in the avoidance or reduction of hypos or recognising and dealing with a hypo more confidently.  Providers are encouraged to register and run some activities/events throughout the week.
