This module is an innovative multi-professional qualification which has been jointly developed by North East Essex Diabetes Specialist Team and the University of Essex. The subjects are specifically aimed to meet the learning needs of those providing clinical services to patients with diabetes in Primary Care, the community and in the hospital setting. The module is suitable for general practitioners, practice nurses and pharmacists where insulin or GLP-1 initiation is required.
At the end of the module you will be able to:
- Critically evaluate clinical investigations and the data they produce to monitor glycaemic control, in order to predict risk and plan appropriate interventions, (including insulin and GLP1 initiation)
- Critically evaluate and synthesise available and contemporary evidence in order to develop diabetes management plans that include the initiation of insulin or GLP1 medication, ensuring they are person-centred, and that they optimise glycaemic control
- Analyse and engage in effective communication and motivational techniques to agree goals and enhance glycaemic control in complex cases
- Advise, initiate, and titrate insulin and GLP-1 medications through critical evaluation and application of national and local policy, recommendations and current research to improve glycaemic control
