Digibete for Children, from Leeds Children’s Hospital

DigiBete is a video platform and social enterprise created in partnership with the Diabetes Team at Leeds Children’s Hospital. It contains videos and resources are designed to help people and families self-manage their Type 1 Diabetes. Maddie and Rob Julian are DigiBete’s co-founders and directors and parents of a toddler with Type 1 diabetes. Dr. Fiona Campbell, Consultant Paediatric Diabetologist, Leeds Children’s Hospital, also contributes to the site and comments, “The approach we have taken in the design and delivery of this new educational platform has embodied the values and behaviours of the way we do things at Leeds Children’s Hospital: patient-centered, collaborative, fair, accountable and empowered. The Children and Young People’s Diabetes Team have worked in partnership with their patients and families. We have used simple language that is easy to understand so as to empower them to confidently, self-manage their diabetes to the best of their ability. In doing so we hope that we will help our children, young people, who are living with diabetes, to live long and happy complication-free lives.”
