Diabetes Resources

Diabetes UK have put together some really useful training and resources:

  • Understanding Diabetes CPD – this module will provide you with an overview of diabetes, and increase your knowledge and skills to effectively support people living with or at risk of diabetes.
  • Information Prescriptions – Information Prescriptions are personalised pieces of information which are easy to read, have clear images and have individual goals to help prevent a diabetes health complication. They are designed to give people with diabetes the information that they need to understand, engage with and improve on their health targets.  Whilst primarily practice-focussed, they may be useful in pharmacy for the Hypertension Case Finding and Contraception services.

My Type1 Diabetes is a patient resource produced by Trend UK specifically for those living with Type 1 diabetes.

Healthy Living is a free, online NHS programme that supports people to live well with type 2 diabetes.  It includes information and advice about: type 2 diabetes, eating well, becoming more active, how to look after your body and mind,
other NHS services and support, and living with diabetes, including driving, working and travelling.
