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:
- Interpret data from clinical investigations to monitor glycaemic control, predict risk and plan appropriate interventions, (including oral medications, insulin and GLP1 initiation)
Develop person-centred, evidence-based, diabetes management plans to optimise glycaemic control that include the initiation of insulin or GLP1 medication
- Engage effective communication and motivational techniques to agree goals and enhance glycaemic control
- Advise, initiate, and titrate insulin and GLP-1 medications through application of national and local policy, recommendations and current research to improve glycaemic control
