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:
Diabetes and natural disaster module
This two-part module is designed for diabetes educators and other health professionals. It aims to equip its audience to educate and support people with diabetes to manage the condition before, during and after a natural disaster or emergency.
- Access the diabetes and natural disaster learning modules on the Australian Diabetes Educators Association (ADEA) website.
Diabetes in aged care modules
Three eLearning modules have been developed for diabetes educators, nurses and aged care workers, working in aged care settings. The modules aim to expand the knowledge and experience of managing older people with diabetes by enhancing understanding of the ageing process and its effects on the care and support of people with diabetes.
- Access the aged care learning modules on the ADEA website.
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
This project includes two key elements—the person-centred care website and the person-centred care toolkit. The toolkit is available in other languages.
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.
