A 26-module educational platform about injecting insulin has been made free to support people with diabetes who need help with their technique amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The BD and Me platform provides useful and up-to-date information about the correct management of the injection therapy process. The gesture has been made by BD Diabetes Care, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of insulin pen needles.

The company has also made a number of other resources freely available, including injection starter kits, either printed or electronic injection technique guides for adults or children and e-learning for AutoShield Duo™ to ensure staff who are having to inject people with insulin have the proper training for the device to ensure best practice in these clinical areas.

The sales team are on hand to deliver training or demonstrations via Skype and there is also email support where any questions from healthcare professionals will be answered.

Chris Maguire. BD Diabetes Care’s Marketing Manager for UK and Ireland, said: “We at BD understand that the situation is very challenging for all our customers, with a lot of unknowns and changes in workload and priorities. BD is still here to support you, as a healthcare professional, and those living with diabetes during this extraordinary health emergency.

“BD Diabetes Care are here to support you as much as you need. As one of the world’s largest manufacturers of insulin pen needles and a company committed to advancing the world of health, we are here for you.”
