Course Overview

Our Diabetes Care in Children and Young People Course has been written for people involved in the care or education sector. It aims to give staff, supervisors and managers the knowledge to provide the best professional approach to diabetes care in children and young adults.

There are about 35,000 children and young people under the age of 19 with diabetes in the UK. Ninety-six per cent have Type 1. Despite the UK having the fourth highest population of children and young people with diabetes in Europe, there is no standardised approach to care and the UK is one of the worst-performing countries in terms of blood glucose control. The World Health Organization estimate that over 347 million people worldwide including 2.9 million people in the UK have diabetes and it is estimated that 630,000 people in the UK have the condition, but don’t know it, and did you know that treatment of diabetes costs the NHS an estimated £10 billion a year in hospital beds alone?

On this Diabetes Care in Children and Young People course, you will discover:

  • What diabetes is
  • Effects of Glucose and Insulin
  • How to recognise the symptoms of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes
  • The side effects of diabetes
  • How to best care for different groups of people with diabetes
