Global Edulink


Diabetes is common and millions of people are affected by this disease. Do you want to learn more about diabetes? Gain an understanding of diabetes awareness and how the disease impacts people? The Advanced Diploma in Diabetes Awareness Level 3 is designed for healthcare professionals who want to raise awareness of the disease, or gain an understanding of it in order to provide more effective care to diabetes patients.

The course will cover key topics which include understanding the symptoms of diabetes, types of diabetes, medication, how to avoid diabetes and maintaining a healthy life. Additionally, individuals who work in healthcare professions will be engaged in typical day to day duties such as assisting with clinical duties, recording and observing patients, promoting positive mental health, communicating with the patient’s family or carer.

The Advanced Diploma in Diabetes Awareness Level 3 course is effective in terms of supporting the development of healthcare professionals who want to learn more about diabetes and how they may provide assistance to patients living with this condition. The course will fully equip you to have a strong understanding of the condition and support diabetic individuals accordingly. The course will enable learners to become familiar with short and long-term risks, treatment methods available and provide support in their day to day lives.
