Diabetes is the fastest growing chronic condition in Australia, with 1 in 4 adults either living with diabetes or pre-diabetes. If not managed effectively, diabetes can lead to serious health complications. Support Workers play an important role in taking care of the person living with diabetes and can help them practice good diabetes care. Effective self–care results in better health related outcomes and quality of life for the person living with diabetes. This eLearning program will provide Disability Support Workers with a basic understanding of diabetes, and how it relates to their work and the situations that arise from their role.
By completing this course, participants will:
Gain a basic understanding of diabetes, and how to recognise signs and symptoms of diabetes in people in their care
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 infections
Improve their ability to support the person living with diabetes and have a meaningful and helpful conversation
