Diabetes and Insulin Administration Training

Overview

Diabetes and Insulin Administration Training – This ½ day course looks at the basic pathophysiology of diabetes and disease management, enabling improved care and understanding for anyone dealing with diabetic patients or service users.

Why is it Important?

Diabetes

Approximately 3.5 million people are diagnosed with diabetes in the UK today. It is estimated a further 500,000 are undiagnosed, meaning the number of people living with diabetes in the UK is over 4 million.

Type 2 diabetes has been growing at a particularly high rate and accounts for the majority of these. It is now one of the world’s most common long-term health conditions.

Having diabetes carries high risk of developing other complications and diseases, significantly impacting the individual’s life, activities and wellbeing.

Early recognition and good management can help delay or prevent this occurring.
