Content

This unit enables students to understand the principles and practical application of methods of diabetes management - particularly diet, medication and lifestyle changes. The unit recognises the singularity of each person with diabetes, and the need to tailor management and education to each individual's requirements. The students will gain understanding of the educator's role in a multidisciplinary team and appreciate the team approach to diabetes care based in current National Standards of Practice for Diabetes Educators. The unit will provide students with the ability to recognise and appropriately advise in a diabetic emergency and to deliver accurate and current information to people with diabetes based on best evidence-based practice.
