Diabetes Awareness Course

Do you need to take a diabetes awareness course?

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.

Is this the right diabetes awareness course for me?

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 diabetes awareness 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 course is one of a range of health and social care courses that we provide.

What our students say

Wonderful course, very easy to follow. Got me up to speed in no time at all on the basics of fire safety. Would recommend to others wishing to learn more about the basic principles of fire safety in the workplace.

I enjoyed this course and found the interactive videos easy to follow.  The course content is well thought out and provided lots of useful information.  I passed each module with flying colours and feel I now understand the basics when it comes to asbestos awareness.  Would highly recommend this online course.

The level 1 food safety for catering course was easy to follow and I learned a lot.  I enjoyed the way the course was delivered and how it was broken down into small modules, which made it easier to learn.  I have since completed level 2 food safety too.
