Western Sydney University will be running the Graduate Certificate/Diploma in Person Centred Diabetes Care and Education commencing in Spring Session (July) 2019.
This clinically focused course is designed for multidisciplinary clinicians who would like to specialise in diabetes clinical care and education.
Underpinned by an empowerment approach to Person-centred diabetes care, students will learn about the clinical management of diabetes and how best to support and educate people with diabetes to manage their condition and optimise their health. In addition to examining the aetiology, pathophysiology, clinical assessment and management of different types of diabetes and short and long term complications, this course will explore self-management support at the system, organisational and individual level.
This inter-professional course provides the opportunity for the student to learn with, about, and from other health disciplines in delivering diabetes care. Delivered online, however, there will be a compulsory one week face to face clinical skills workshop and 40 hours of mandatory clinical practicum.
This course will be led by Distinguished Professor David Simmons, a global leader in diabetes care and research from the School of Medicine. This is uniquely associated with a high level of clinical expertise and world class researchers in diabetes care and prevention.
