Diabetes Awareness (Online)

Skills for Health
Delivery Method: eLearning

More than 3.2 million people in the UK now have diabetes. Our diabetes online course will equip you with a greater understanding of the challenges around the condition and how it can be effectively managed.


This diabetes training will show that type 1, type 2 and gestational diabetes have very different and distinct characteristics and can affect people in very different ways.

Over the four modules of this diabetes course you will learn about these differences, get great practical tips around management of diabetes and learn of the impact of diabetes on those it affects.

You’ll get to understand the ways that people living with diabetes can adapt their lifestyles to reduce the risk of developing pre-diabetes, diabetes itself, or from reaching a dangerous weight that makes diabetes a reality.

You will automatically receive a course certificate on completion of this diabetes course – with your name, the CPD hours you have earned, the date and learning objectives covered.
