Diabetes in primary care

Diabetes in Primary Care is a post-qualification course for healthcare professionals which is provided by King’s College London, a university based in central London.

The course is for all healthcare professionals who directly contribute to the care and management of diabetes in primary care (eg. GPs, practice nurses, district nurses, podiatrists, community pharmacists, dietitians, and specialist posts in chronic disease management). The course is designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills necessary to deliver diabetes care effectively within a framework of chronic disease management, and with reference to local and national guidelines.

The course is jointly run by the Medical, Nursing and Pharmacy schools of King’s College London, and is taught using computer-based distance learning, together with 5 college-based study days spread out over two terms. Because the course has an e-learning component, students will need access to a networked computer and be proficient in its use.
