Course Description

Diabetes is an emerging epidemic. No matter what area of healthcare you work in, you will encounter people affected by diabetes. New approaches to diabetes management are continuously appearing.

This comprehensive course is for health professionals from a variety of disciplines who face diabetes in practice.
