Course Support:12 months expert tutor support

Course Description

This distance learning Diabetes Care for the Elderly programme has been written for people who are involved in the care sector and is aimed to give all staff, supervisors and managers the essential knowledge needed to offer the very best professional approach to the management of diabetes.

This programme will help students become more effective in understanding diabetes to helping others cope with it. For learners looking to enhance their career development in care, this Diabetes Care for the Elderly programme will give students the opportunity to look at parts of the job they may not currently be involved with.

The Diabetes Care for the Elderly programme is divided into nine core modules, each concentrating on an important aspect of diabetes. This is designed to be used as reading material to support workshop style delivery or as a flexible learning package, allowing students to learn at their own pace.

Each module will require students to complete a number of structured questions and activities to ensure that learners have absorbed the required underpinning knowledge on health and safety, and to provide evidence for core skills assessment. The Activities and Assessments Workbook that is included in the Diabetes Care for the Elderly learning pack contains all of these questions, as well as exercises and activities for revision to reinforce student learning.  All of these will be assessed with full expert tutor support.
