Imagine if you could play a pivotal role in providing care that prevents or delays type 2 diabetes...

With the number of people being diagnosed with diabetes reaching over three million in the UK, there has never been a more crucial time to ensure healthcare professionals are fully equipped to deal with this epidemic.

We believe identifying those at risk of developing type 2 diabetes mellitus and working to prevent and/or delay the condition is a key part of addressing this issue. Our one-day course is designed to equip healthcare assistants and nurses working in general practice with the skills and knowledge to help prevent diabetes.

The course is delivered by experts in primary care diabetes and involves lectures and workshop activity - all very practically focused. The emphasis is on learning why and how to deliver more effective care, and planning how best to do this within your practice.

Topics covered include

-Prevention of type 2 diabetes mellitus, and why this is important.
-Making the diagnosis of diabetes mellitus and impaired glucose regulation.
-Case finding in general practice (including how to record and follow up).
-Lifestyle advice.
-Reflecting on practice.
-Establishing a pre-diabetes register.
-Facilitating early diagnosis of type 2 diabetes mellitus.
-Enabling safe intensive treatment of early type 2 diabetes.

An introductory pack will be provided to all participants in advance of the course start date.

Participants will be actively encouraged to discuss the learning outcomes from the day with their colleagues in general practice.

Students will undertake a review of five patients who have attended their practice for the NHS Health Check and have been identified as being at risk of developing type 2 diabetes mellitus. On completion, a certificate of learning will be issued by the University.

The course is designed for those involved in the NHS checks, in particular healthcare assistants and nurses working in General Practice. It focuses on screening and managing cases of individuals with a history of impaired glucose regulation or risk of type 2 diabetes.
