Advancing diabetes care: evidence into practice

This online module is designed to give healthcare professionals involved in the care of diabetes mellitus the necessary knowledge and skills to be able to provide high quality care which is informed by current clinical evidence.

The course will encourage you to:

  • Analyse and critically appraise clinical evidence in relation to the care of people at risk of developing type 2 diabetes and those with type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus.
  • Critically analyse the specific needs of people from black and minority ethnic populations who are at higher risk of developing diabetes mellitus.
  • Analyse and evaluate the economic and social costs related to diabetes mellitus and its associated complications.
  • Identify and articulate barriers and levers in the implementation and management of change to the delivery of holistic, effective and integrated diabetes care with the person with diabetes respected as an individual and central to his or her own health care.
  • Reflect on personal learning styles and needs to enhance and develop the practice skills, and apply them in order to develop a multi-disciplinary team approach to the management of people with diabetes.
  • Critically assess the teaching programmes and methods which may be used when educating people with diabetes and their carers about the condition.
