This project (a research partnership between HYMS and the School of Health and Social Work) explored the experiences and views of people living in Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire who have type II diabetes.
The project team of Professor Thozhukat Sathyapalan, Professor Liz Walker, Janine Keating and Lisa Baldwin delivered a joint dissemination day to the service user participants and to clinical colleagues from across both regions. For those people who contributed their time and experiences to the project, the event offered an opportunity to explore some of the project’s key findings, which focused on the facilitators and barriers to effective management of type II diabetes.
The morning session (for service user participants) was particularly well attended and generated interesting debate about the ways in which service development in Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire could be further improved.
As the project reaches its conclusion, the team would like to thank everyone who contributed time and effort to participate in the project and the University of Hull for hosting the dissemination event.
