Transforming health through education

We’re dedicated to empowering patients to manage their health effectively.

We craft world-class education programmes, and then train and accredit healthcare educators to deliver them.

Diabetes education

EMPOWER is best known for its success in diabetes education. We have a four-hour Type 2 diabetes programme that teaches attendees about diabetes, it’s impact on the body and how to make small, achievable changes to diet and lifestyle.

Our award-winning program is accredited against best practice quality standards in the UK and has been delivered at scale to the UK’s NHS for over a decade, helping thousands of patients.

We’re now looking for trusted partners with the expertise to bring our award-winning service to new countries and regions.

How it works

Organisations that work with us receive all the training and support required to deliver our programmes – no clinical experience is required.

Once accredited, our licenced partners will be able to provide our course to their target audience. This can help to free up clinical resources, leaving diabetes specialist nurses to focus on clinical issues and save you money.

Our annual re-accreditation ensures that all our educators deliver consistent, high-quality education that’s current with the latest information and advice.

Our outcomes

Our Type 2 diabetes programme has been delivered to thousands of satisfied customers for over a decade, achieving fantastic results.

Proven clinical results

Our participant results include a 16.4% relative reduction in HbA1c.[1]

Highly recommended

As well as clinical results, we get great feedback with a 98.8% satisfaction rate. [2]

Saves money

Benefits of a reduced HbA1c include reduced medicine use, driving cost savings for health providers. [3]
