Where Do You Deliver The Diabetes Medication Training?
We can deliver this training at your premises, as long as it's within the UK. Also, we have our own venues in Stoke on Trent, London, Swindon, Epsom & York if you need access to a training room (additional charges will apply). We can also deliver this training virtually using Zoom. However, sessions delivered via Zoom will be theory only and will not include any practicals.
How long will the training last?
This training will last 4 -6 hours. We give a range of time to account for variable factors such as; underlying knowledge and competence of delegates, class interaction and engagement and reduced delegate numbers. If a course finishes earlier than the allotted time, it will be due to one of these reasons. However, our trainer will ensure that all learning outcomes have been met.
Will attending this training make me competent?
In short, no. No classroom-based training course can give you full competency - be very wary of anyone claiming they can. Our classroom-based assessments are designed to bridge the gap between classroom learning and workplace competency. We will be sure to provide you with the relevant workbooks and competency proformas to be observed and signed off within the workplace according to your local policy.
Diabetes Medication Training
This diabetes medication training course aims to improve delegates’ knowledge and understanding of diabetes. A vital course for any staff members working with those with diabetes.
Diabetes is a chronic condition that affects how the body turns food into energy. Type 1 and type 2 are the two main types. Type 1 is an autoimmune disease, and type 2 is caused by genetics and lifestyle factors.
Medications are available to treat diabetes. They help control blood glucose levels in different ways. Some help the body produce more insulin, while others help the body use insulin more effectively.
The goal of diabetes treatment is to keep blood glucose levels as close to normal as possible. This helps prevent complications like heart disease, stroke, blindness, and kidney disease.
