Course Overview

As a Nurse, you play a pivotal role in supporting the person living with diabetes.  This course will provide you with increased knowledge and understanding of diabetes, enabling you to explain diabetes and how to manage it, and answer questions that might be asked in a consultation. By completing this course , you will:

  • Update your knowledge on diabetes management
  • Improve your ability to support the person living with diabetes and have a more helpful conversation using health literacy principles
  • Know how to ask the right questions, and when to refer to other health professionals for more individualised advice
  • Have the tools and resources to implement what you’ve learnt in your workplace, improving health outcomes for your patients


I found Diabetes in Practice for Nurses very easy to understand, the modules flowed well and knowledge tests throughout the course were very helpful in assisting me to retain information. I filled my knowledge gaps about diabetes and the language to use when assisting people living with diabetes. It has inspired me to do some further learning. Sarah, Nurse, December 2017.
