Diabetes type 2 is a major priority for public health. The number of cases of type 2 diabetes is increasing locally and globally, with the medium and long-term impact of diabetes becoming an increasing concern. This has prompted an increased focus on the self-management of this condition.
This course looks at how Health and Social Care professionals can improve patient outcomes through better disease management. By addressing diabetes through a biopsychosocial model of care can help practitioners to support patients in the self-management of the condition facilitating the lifestyle changes they may need to make.
This short professional development course will provide you with the opportunity to further develop your knowledge of diabetes within a biopsychosocial model of health. By applying this model to the care of patients with diabetes you will have the opportunity to consider a truly holistic approach to patients who have type 2 diabetes offering strategies to support their physical, social and psychological needs.
This course is intended to provide a practical and engaging learning experience for registered health professionals and un-registered care staff who have contact with individuals diagnosed with the condition.
