A big welcome to graduates from Kuwait. It seems their centre has now gone live and we have 4 graduates signed up from there. This expands our community to the UK, New Zealand, Australia and Kuwait. Hopefully Singapore will also be 'live' soon as well making us a global community.
Its good to see quality Diabetes training spreading around the world, helping to change the lives of more and more Diabetics.

A happy Xmas to you all ! ( 3011 grads, 266 HCP's , 1439 non-grads). It really is great to have you all on board. Next year we hope to continue to get bigger and better. There is a site facelift in the pipeline and a possible move to a bigger better server so the site responds quicker. Who knows I might even make progress with the android version of Simon's superb iPhone app.
oh, and a happy New Year !!

Its all about carbs at the moment. Having received the new DAFNE Carb Counting book from DAFNE Central, we have updated the lists on the site and finally got permission to add the carb information to the iPhone app which is available in the App Store now.

We've just released the long-awaited DAFNE Online iPhone app... In this first version you can store your diary entries (BG, CP, Insulin, Comments etc) natively on your iPhone and the app will automatically upload your results to the diary on the site, so that you can use the normal diary functions on the site such as viewing graphs and sharing your results.
As discussed on the forums there is no Carbohydrate List, due to an issue with DAFNE Central allowing us to use the list in a free app.
You can find the app on the store by searching for 'DAFNE' or by clicking this link
As always, to request new features or report a bug, then either send us a message via the 'Contact' link at the bottom of every page, or start a topic on the Site Development forum.

The DAFNE User Group (DUG) and DAFNE User Action Groups are open to all DAFNE Graduates and their aim is to allow all members to shape and influence decision making throughout DAFNE, as well as publicise the course to the wider Healthcare community.
After the DAFNE Course, all Graduates are invited to sign up to become members of the DAFNE User Group and after joining are consulted on various aspects of the course, including suggestions for improvement, so that the future of the course is more directly influenced by the users.
Members of the DUG may volunteer for the DAFNE User Action Group whose aim is to act as a channel of communication between the DUG, DAFNE Educators, the DAFNE Executive and the wider Healthcare community, lobbying for improvements to the course, better consistency of care throughout the UK, and access to DAFNE for everybody with Type 1 Diabetes.

Not strictly DAFNE but an issue probably relevant to us all. A video featuring Claudia aged 9 about her attempts to get a constant monitoring pump. The short term cost savings of not providing equipment are far, far out-weighed by the potential long term costs in complications of NOT providing equipment.
see the video here and help if you can !
