Feltman® Training for Health Professionals

This teaching tool can be used by health professionals to help explain what happens in the body of someone who has diabetes.

Feltman® is a life size felt mat, in the shape of a human body and shows the systems and organs relating to diabetes. It can be hung up (for example on a white board) or laid down on a flat surface.

The tool can be used with individuals and community groups, as a one-way demonstration or as a two-way interactive workshop. It is perfect for audiences which learn best in a visual way or for whom English is not their first language.

Feltman® can be used to explain:

  • What is diabetes?
  • What are the risk factors for developing type 2 diabetes?
  • What are some of the complications of diabetes?
  • How can people with diabetes manage the condition?
  • How can people at risk prevent type 2 diabetes?

Diabetes WA is offering training for individuals working with Aboriginal communities across WA on how to best utilise the Feltman® resource.

All training sessions are hosted by Diabetes WA’s diabetes educators.

Courses can be booked online. If you have questions email [email protected] or call 1300 001 880.
