Description

Feltman is a diabetes education tool made in partnership between Diabetes Australia - Vic and the Victorian Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (VACCHO) to teach Aboriginal people about diabetes management and the prevention of type 2 diabetes.

This new diabetes educational resource is a felt mat that can be either laid out on a flat surface or hung up. It is in the shape of the human body and shows the systems and organs relating to diabetes. Using the stick-on felt pieces, Aboriginal Health Workers can show their patients or community groups how insulin works in the body.

Feltman comes with an instructional DVD and cards.

When to use this resource

Feltman can be used by health workers with individuals or groups, in demonstrations or interactive workshops. The particular advantage of the Feltman is that it is life-sized, enabling people to better visualise the body parts in their own bodies.
