Care of the Adult with Diabetes

Our post-qualifying framework (PQF) allows health and social care practitioners to continue their professional development and achieve further qualifications in their field.


Course overview

The module is taught over 6 sessions on campus totalling 36 hours, however there is an expectation that students will supplement this with self-directed independent learning of approximately 164 hours.

  • The module seeks to enhance and develop the professional's role in the provision of management and practice of diabetes care.
  • It is aimed at professionals who, within their practice, are responsible for the direction and delivery of autonomous diabetes care.
  • The module will provide opportunity for students to evaluate the role of the professional in providing and developing effective diabetes care that responds to individual needs and meets local and national guidelines.
  • The NSF for Diabetes gives clear guidelines for the empowerment and management of people with diabetes. This initiative has lead to significant and on-going direction in the way in which health care professionals work to deliver high quality diabetes care over the past 10 years and into the future. This module will enable students to establish and maintain new partnerships between patients, health care providers and education.
