New DESMOND evaluation forms released


By now, educators who deliver the DESMOND program should have received the new DESMOND Australia Evaluation Toolbox.

The evaluation toolbox has recently been revised to include questions from the Diabetes Empowerment Scale and the Problem Areas in Diabetes (PAID) scale.

Utilising nationally standardised questions for comprehensive, structured diabetes education the surveys measure participants’ psychosocial beliefs about their diabetes, readiness for change and goal setting, as well as diabetes-related distress pre, post and three months following the DESMOND program. The evaluation continues to measure participants’ satisfaction with program content and delivery, as well as their level of satisfaction and engagement with the educator/facilitator.

If you are delivering DESMOND, and have not received the new toolbox, please call Kelly Baxter at DESMOND Australia on (08) 9436 6235 or send an email
