Conversation Map Tool
A Conversation Map is a series of images and common metaphors on a 3 by 5 foot tabletop display. Conversation Maps are designed to be interactive and to help people with diabetes to discover the information that you want and need to know around a health condition that you or a loved one is managing. The Conversation Map sessions create a forum for patients to engage with each other and a healthcare professional, to share stories, to ask questions and to develop action plans to make behavioural changes. These map tools are designed by Healthy interactions, implemented by International Diabetes Federation and sponsored by Eli Lilly global. There are four basic map tools and in the whole there are eight map tools to provide diabetes self-management education.

“Living in a family with type 1 diabetes” Conversation map tool was specially developed for children with type 1 diabetes (7 to 12 years old) and their family members and caregivers. The Map tool can also be used in a children-only session in hospital, clinic or diabetes camp setting. The session is for children who were diagnosed with diabetes more than 6 months ago. The Map content addresses psychological and social concerns of children with type 1 diabetes, key learning for parents, other care givers and siblings as well as some basic diabetes information. This Map tool does not include complete content for diabetes self-management education.

Insulin my life project arranged ”Living in a family with type 1 diabetes” conversation map tool sessions with the collaboration of Baqai institute of Diabetology and Endocrinology, Centre of Education by International Diabetes Federation in Pakistan for children with type 1 diabetes.
