About the Course

Diabetes is the fastest growing chronic condition in Australia, and around one quarter of all people living in Residential Aged Care Facilities have diabetes.  For older people, helping them maintain the best quality of life is one of the main principles of diabetes management and Aged Care Workers play a pivotal role in supporting the person living with diabetes. This eLearning program will provide Aged Care Workers and Assistants in Nursing with a basic understanding of diabetes, and how it relates to their work and the situations that arise from their role.

Learning outcomes:

  • Gain a basic understanding of diabetes, and how to recognise signs and symptoms of diabetes in residents.
  • Recognise the difference between high and low blood glucose levels, and know the appropriate action to take
  • Be able to identify and flag issues which may lead to the reduction in diabetes related complications, such as falls, incontinence and infections
  • Improve their ability to support the person living with diabetes and have a meaningful conversation

Testimonials:

“The ‘Practical Diabetes for Aged Care Workers’ course provided our staff with a good understanding of diabetes and how they can recognise signs and symptoms in the people in our care. Many of our residents have diabetes, so it was important to our organisation to provide practical and relevant education about the effects of diabetes on the elderly. Our workers found the online course easy to use and they enjoyed the interactive case studies. Many commented that they felt much more confident talking to people with diabetes as a direct result of training ”  Shellee – Georgina Hostel and Aged Care Facility.

The Diabetes Qualified ‘Practical Diabetes for Aged Care Workers’ course was beneficial from both a management and support workers perspective. The content was excellent and the course wasn’t complicated, it covered the basics for all levels of staff. Overall it is an excellent course for workers.  Anne – Registered Nurse and Senior Manager – Uniting Communities
