Online learning for health professionals

We have a range of learning programs to help health professionals strengthen their knowledge and understanding of diabetes. Programs include the following:

National Diabetes Nursing Education Framework

A series of 15 learning modules support the National Diabetes Nursing Education Framework—helping nurses gain the foundation level knowledge identified in part 3 of the framework. The modules are endorsed by the Australian Diabetes Educators Association for CPD hours.

Person-centred care project

The Australian Diabetes Educators Association (ADEA) person-centred care toolkit is a quality improvement tool for diabetes educators and diabetes services to use for measuring person-centred care, highlighting areas of improvement and monitoring changes in their practice. The toolkit is based on a set of 10 evidence-based, person-centred care principles.

Pre-pregnancy planning and care for women with diabetes

This course for health professionals provides information on pregnancy planning and preparation for women with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. The course includes 3 modules—pregnancy and diabetes, preconception counselling (including effective contraception use), and pre-pregnancy care.

Completion of all three modules allows you to claim 2 ADEA CPD points (02/03/2020) or 2 ACM CPD hours (to 05/06/2021). A certificate is provided upon completion of the modules and course evaluation.

New modules coming soon! This course is currently in the process of being updated. The updated modules will be available at this link soon.
