Diabetes Awareness

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