Care and Management of People with Diabetes mellitus


Are you a working health professional looking to develop a deeper understanding of the care of diabetes in patients? Join Staffordshire University and get access to the experts in the field that put you at the forefront of diabetes care.

Our module covers the care of patients of diabetes in primary and secondary care situations, and your teaching and learning will be tailored to your current professional needs. With us, you’ll build the knowledge base from biology/pathophysiology to explore the specific care needs of the group due to disease progression, linking with areas of health education, teaching, monitoring, support and the wider health care team involvement in the long term and holistic care and management required by the person with a diagnosis of diabetes.

You will explore a range of topics during the module, including support issues, nutrition, pathophysiology, long term management and sexual health. This module will also take you through the latest research and treatment options available, and the multicultural issues that are associated with diabetes mellitus.
