CDE online foundation course on diabetes
The ‘Foundation Course in Diabetes Care for Health Professionals’, is a 100% online course created by the Centre for Diabetes and Endocrinology (CDE)
The course serves as an entry point for healthcare professionals into the world of diabetes, and also as a refresher for those who have had previous diabetes training.
Unlike many diabetes courses that focus almost exclusively on pathophysiology and pharmacotherapy, the CDE Foundations Course incorporates an emphasis on holistic care approaches, such as diabetes education, exercise and coaching.
The course comprises 16 modules that cover topics such as lifestyle management, pharmacological management, glycaemic monitoring, injection techniques and footcare.
