Diabetes is a waking giant in the medical landscape of Australians. With more than 5% of the population diagnosed with one of the many forms of diabetes, it is inevitable that every nurse will be or have been, recently caring for a diabetic patient. With many advances in both our understanding and management of this syndrome, nurses may be daunted with keeping up to date.
The ECT4Health Diabetic Nursing Refresher online education series journeys through the science and pathophysiology of the condition, its diagnosis, assessment and management of the types of diabetes. Strong links to cardiovascular disease, and obesity makes this family of diseases an area that contemporary nurses need to be current in.
The Diabetic Nursing Refresher online education series has a solid 7 CPD delivered in 5 x 60-90 minute video sessions using the platform ZOOM.
