DESG is developping partnerships with other groups to explore new areas for therapeutic education.
1) « Diabetes and fasting » : many religions recommend to fast for a short or long period. The muslim community fast during the holy month of Ramadan and persons with diabètes are at high risk of severe hypos or hyper glycemia. DESG, in partnership with IDF Mena Region, IDF Africa Region and GGSD, has organized a « DAR Alliance » workshop to share experience on « Diabetes & Ramadan ». This alliance is working on education material for the patients, the imams and the healthcare professionals, in order to increase patient safety. Guidelines are compared, when existing in different countries, to progress towards international guidelines.
