Be at the forefront of diabetes care by using a personalised care planning approach to better help people with diabetes and other long term conditions to successfully self-manage! This section tells you about our experience and successes to date, together with resources to help you learn more about personalised care planning, and also outlines the workshops we offer.
Why ask Successful Diabetes?
We are the leading independent provider of training for implementing personalised care planning. We have experience of running hundreds of workshops nationwide, involving thousands of participants, including people with diabetes. Our specialist skills in responding to local needs and our fully learner centred approach have led at least eight organisations to commission a range of subsequent workshops from Successful Diabetes.
In addition, we have been the preferred provider of all personalised care planning training for a number of CCGs in England, where we help them to implement care planning through developing skills and changing care systems across their locality.

Read on for our range of Personalised Care Planning Workshops...
There are a number of standard personalised care planning workshop options available, which are detailed below. We are particularly pleased to offer two additional options, which will help you develop trainers and mentors to be able to implement care planning in your area. It is recommended that any of the chosen options are part of a larger implementation plan within a locality.
Personalised Care Planning: Putting the Theory into practice
This is a one day workshop with a follow-up half day 1-3 months later. It is designed to help practitioners such as GPs, practice nurses, healthcare assistants and administrative staff work together on understanding care planning and identifying strategies to be able to implement this into their own practice. The workshops can be focused on diabetes, on long term conditions generally, or on a single long term condition according to local need. A single workshop and follow-up can be purchased, or a series of workshops and follow-ups to integrate care planning across a locality.
Cost of Personalised Care Planning: Putting the Theory into practice: £2000
