Diabetes education and training for the adult care sector.
A variety of workshops offering an informative and interactive way to stay up-to-date and increase skills and confidence in caring for people living with diabetes.
What makes our service different? We focus solely on providing diabetes training; as small interactive groups led by a diabetes specialist nurse who also works within the NHS. The workshops can be run exclusively for you at your location, or three of our workshops are also delivered as “open workshops” at two venues in Suffolk.
New: “Diabetic Foot Screening” workshop - aimed at individuals involved with adult diabetes care and/or annual diabetes checks; such as senior care staff (residential and domiciliary care), registered nurses and healthcare assistants.
