Course summary

This programme is a collaboration between Birmingham City University and the University Hospitals Birmingham Diabetes Team. This is an online course with the option of bespoke flying faculty delivery available for international partners.

This innovative programme is designed to help you gain a greater understanding of the complexities of living with diabetes and how best to support and enable effective individualised self-management. It is suitable for healthcare professionals including GPs, hospital-based doctors, specialist nurses and practice nurses, midwives, dietitians, podiatrists, pharmacists, psychologists and other roles in many healthcare sectors.

You will develop a wide range of skills, learn about new and emerging evidence and gain critical understanding in diabetes care. You will acquire knowledge to develop and improve clinical practice in the care of people living with diabetes across the age span. You will take an evidence-based holistic approach to the provision and delivery of individualised diabetes care.

What's covered in the course?

This programme has been designed in collaboration with clinical colleagues and blends theoretical approaches with practicalities of service development and person-centred care approaches. The international dimension of diabetes and application of culturally appropriate diabetes care in different environments and resources underpins this programme. Through different modules, you will explore your employment situation, recognise the potential for excellence in practice-led care, extend and enhance your employability and career progression. You will also identify ways in which you can improve your practice and services in order to pioneer new interdisciplinary service developments.

The programme will enable practitioners working in various aspects of care, with people either at risk of or living with diabetes, to develop knowledge and skills in diabetes care. You will develop analytical skills through interactive online learning opportunities, so that you are able to critically examine practices within the context of the legislative and professional frameworks of your own country.
