Learning Opportunities for Canadian Health Care Professionals
We have several ways for you to Make a Difference in Diabetes
Diabetes Manager University (DMU) Professional Training Program
Whether you are new to diabetes or an experienced diabetes educator, diabetes presents unique challenges to those affected and to the health professionals who serve them. And because of those challenges, things aren’t going very well for the vast majority of people who live with this disease. If we want to change the outcomes of care, we have to be willing to review and, when necessary, change what we do. This is what we call “Learning to Make a Difference in Diabetes”.
Our Online Diabetes Manager University is an 8-week mastery course in how and why to use today’s best therapies in a patient-centered model of care. Our online diabetes training program for Canadian health care professionals includes videos, lectures, journal reading, case presentations, experiential learning, and professional discussion. The Online DMU is perfect for anyone who needs a deeper understanding of managing diabetes in Canada and wants to take that training from the convenience of your home or office.
Over the course of the training program, Participants will discover:
- Canadian diabetes care and treatment realities
- Early detection and intervention strategies
- How to improve metabolic control and patient engagement using blood glucose monitoring
- The use of today’s diabetes medications and delivery devices in a patient-centered model of care
- How to help patients “write their own diets” and exercise plans to achieve better outcomes and motivation
- How to become a more valued coach and partner
