New Peers for Progress Website Sports Fresh Look, Enhanced Functionality
By News Staff
First established as a global program that aimed to evaluate, demonstrate and promote peer support for diabetes management around the world, Peers for Progress has since expanded its activities to focus on accelerating and promoting best practices in peer support as a regular part of health care and prevention around the world. To that end, the new website is intended to serve as a resource for peer support programs eager to enhance quality and boost the services they provide.
The site includes sections that
- describe peer support and present the science behind its effectiveness;
- outline the steps involved in designing, implementing, evaluating, and maintaining a peer support program;
- discuss the physician's role in promoting peer support; and
- allow visitors to view, browse, and access peer support-related documents and materials, as well as upload their own such resources.
Peers for Progress is supported by the Eli Lilly and Co. Foundation.
