CO-IMPACT Toolkit for People with Diabetes or their Care Partners
Most adults with chronic health conditions like diabetes have family members or friends who are regularly involved in their medical and self-care. These family supporters are an important resource who can help people with diabetes increase their confidence, their ability to manage diabetes day-to-day, and their active involvement in their healthcare. The CO-IMPACT Program is for people with diabetes and a trusted family member or friend (called a 'Care Partner'). The Care Partner can help the person with diabetes reach their health goals.
