The Diabetes Manual is a one-to-one structured education programme for people with type 2 diabetes. It aims to help them develop skills and confidence in the management of their condition quickly and progressively. It includes a 2-day facilitator training course to develop health professionals’ confidence in supporting people through the programme. The Diabetes Manual meets the national criteria for structured education. This article describes the development of the Manual and a randomised controlled trial that provides evidence of its effectiveness and acceptability. Data from patient records offer some information about how people with type 2 diabetes use the Diabetes Manual. Practice-nurse focus groups found the programme acceptable and feasible for use in clinical settings.
