Diabetes Ireland: Type 2 Online Education Programme


CODE is Diabetes Ireland’s group education programme for people with Type 2 Diabetes or with a diagnosis of prediabetes.

Each CODE (online) programme consists of 4 sessions, The first 3 sessions are over 3 consecutive weeks, and the final session takes place 6 months later. Each session is 2 hours in duration.

CODE (online) aims to deliver general information about diabetes self-management in a supported online setting. The groups are facilitated by Diabetes Ireland Health Professionals, a Nurse or Dietitian, and kept to a maximum of 12 participants, allowing people to talk in a supportive, non-judgemental environment about their own diabetes.

The programme aims to support participants to set goals and support each other with tools for self-management.

Time is allocated during the programme for problem solving, people’s feedback on diabetes self-management, behaviours and goal settling. Diabetes knowledge and skills are reinforced and the responsibility for the personal self-management of diabetes is gradually strengthened.

Our flexible approach allows the sessions to be tailored to meet the self-identified needs of each individual.

  • Diabetes Explained
