Module description

Diabetes mellitus affects every age group from childhood to old age. It is a complex metabolic disorder characterised by persistent hyperglycaemia in association with other cardiovascular risk factors. Recent research has provided unequivocal evidence that improved control of blood glucose and vascular risk factors will delay and reduce the severity of diabetic complications. Over the last decade, the Department of Health have introduced many government initiatives to improve standards of care for people living with diabetes. This module is intended to reinforce the concept of inter-professional and partnership working in diabetes care. Therefore, it is imperative that the student acquires and develops a sound knowledge and relevant skills that incorporate all aspects of diabetes management, and be able to identify diabetes competences applicable to their role either in a primary or secondary care setting. In addition, the students will be in the unique position to both support the person to come to terms with having a long-term condition and empower him/her to make choices about the management of their diabetes.
