www.t1resources.uk - A resource for patients with Type 1 diabetes!

A new website launched last week providing resources for people affected by type 1 diabetes. The website, www.t1resources.uk, has been set up by a YDEF's own Sophie Harris, who is currently doing a PhD investigating barriers to uptake of structured education. The website is based on findings that people find it hard to know what to trust online and less than 10% of people have a peer that they can ask for advice.

The website brings many resources under one roof, where they are reviewed and rated to ensure they are safe and useful. With over 80 resources, and more added daily, it is a great place to sign-post your patients to to learn more about social media and the online support available. 

Access the website now and let your patients know!
