Support services for health professionals

Health professionals play a key role as providers of information, education, motivation and support. And we are here to help health professionals play this role effectively with our range of support services.

The NDSS provides training for all the people who care for or support people with diabetes—health professionals or support staff, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers, bilingual community educators, teachers supporting children in school and pre-school, disability or aged care workers and NDSS Access Point (usually pharmacy) staff.

You can access NDSS information, education and support services through your local diabetes organisation (also called NDSS Agents), present in all states and territories. To find out more about the support services available through the NDSS, call the NDSS Helpline on 1300 136 588.

Online learning

We have a range of online learning programs to help health professionals enhance their knowledge and understanding of diabetes.

Resources

We’ve put together a range of resources to help you to assist people with diabetes to manage their diabetes and live well. These include training modules, general information about the NDSS and diabetes product information.
