Course Description

This one day study day will provide an overview of diabetes management for primary and community care.

The day will include:

  • a reminder of the pathophysiology of diabetes and the main types
  • the latest guidelines for diagnosis
  • a summary of the main treatments for diabetes and the side effects
  • acute situations such as hypos, ketoacidosis
  • prevention of complications and how diabetes is monitored
  • pregnancy planning guidelines and referral
  • how to learn more about these issues.

Throughout the day, there will be reference to relevant guidelines, including the new National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidance published in 2015.

You will gain increasing awareness of the potential issues for people with diabetes and the role of primary and community care in helping to prevent these.

Each study day has a number of NHS funded places, with support of Health Education England across Yorkshire and the Humber (HEE Y&H). 

Funded places are available to employees of NHS trusts and primary care staff within Yorkshire and the Humber and to anyone working in an area which provides placements for University of York nursing or midwifery students. This also applies to nursing staff working in the ambulance service, prison service and hospices. Places may be available to social services staff working in a healthcare environment. This is agreed on a case-by-case basis.

We therefore do not charge when you book your place, but will contact you should you not meet the required criteria for a funded place. Non funded places are charged at £100.00, payable in advance.

Please follow the booking process all the way through. You should receive a confirmation email. Please note that your booking is not confirmed until you have received a confirmation email. If you experience a problem during the online booking process please contact Jane Milsom on 01904 321392.
