Diabetes is a health condition that affects over 4 million people in the UK alone and needs constant monitoring and management. While this can often be done by the individual, it is important that anybody around them knows what to do should the situation escalate.
This Diabetes Awareness Course teaches you about the different levels of diabetes, how complications can arise and how to manage the most common situations. This training will provide delegates with an in-depth knowledge of diabetes and the confidence to offer help if required.
Our Diabetes Awareness Course covers the basic principles of diabetic care, how complications can affect a diabetic and some of the latest treatments for diabetes. It also touches on glucose management, blood sugar monitoring and the difference between hypoglycaemia and hyperglycaemia.
