Diabetes is a serious lifelong health condition that occurs when the amount of glucose, or sugar, in the blood is too high. If left untreated, high blood glucose levels can cause serious health complications.
Diabetes can develop in anyone at any point in their life although there are certain groups and age ranges where it is more common. There are a range of symptoms that could indicate that someone had Diabetes, these range from excessive thirst to feeling more tired than usual. It is believed that up to 26% of residential and nursing home residents have Diabetes so being able to recognise the symptoms and knowing how you can help them to manage the condition is essential.
This course is aimed at people working in the health and social care sector and will provide an overview of the condition, the common symptoms that might indicate someone has diabetes, methods of diagnosis, some possible treatments and common complications that can affect those with the condition.

The best training is always having a tutor in front of you with their presentation, so that’s how our online courses are made! The tutor is “green-screened” with the presentation, photos and videos put in afterwards. The courses are then build into modules with question banks and minimum scores applied. The certifying body then views it and agrees to put their name to it and then you have the chance to take part in the training. Assuming you are successful, your certificate is available for download at the end.
