Diabetes in the Young Module
February 5 @ 12:30 pm - 3:00 pm
Gavin will be providing a session for student health care professionals to develop their type 1 diabetes understanding.
Optimal diabetes management is crucial in childhood and young adulthood to prevent the long-term complications associated with diabetes. A multi-disciplinary team approach is necessary to support optimal diabetes outcomes in this group. You will explore the barriers and facilitators to optimal diabetes management, using enhanced clinical skills to support best practice diabetes management and psychological health.
This module will provide you with an understanding of the complexities of paediatric diabetes, through transition to young adulthood and the challenges they pose. You will gain knowledge, through a structured approach, of specific factors that impact on diabetes self-management, family dynamics and decision-making in this group; and will be able to apply this knowledge in your own practice to help people with diabetes in a more holistic and person-centred way
