This module aims to expose students to management of diabetes in a range of areas within the UK health service and requires them to critically reflect upon diabetes management and the application of theory to practice.
The course will encourage students to:
- identify individual learning objectives for clinical observations and critically evaluate own personal learning outcomes.
- critically analyse current research evidence and provide evidence based appraisal of observed practice.
- critically reflect on personal learning and the need to develop practice skills, and show a critical awareness of their application to the clinical environment.
- critically analyse and discuss how theoretical concepts are adapted and applied to clinical practice in the management of people living with diabetes.
- justify anticipated clinical outcomes in relation to the clinical management plan for a patient with diabetes and other co- morbidities.
- evaluate the key theoretical concepts related to the use of current technology in the administration of insulin.
