Does Type 2 diabetes seem more complicated and confusing than it used to be? We think so! 

  • Overwhelmed by the baffling array of drugs and sometimes don’t know which way to go?
  • Want to offer high impact lifestyle advice and encourage self-management but not completely sure how to do it in a way that actually makes a difference?
  • Feel like you are juggling lipids, blood pressures, renal function, fatty liver and HbA1c and finding hard to see the wood from the trees?
  • Not completely sure what the difference is between MODY and LADA (and half-wondering if they might be car models?).
  • New diabetic lead for your practice or PCN, whether you are a nurse, GP or AHP?

If you answered yes to any or all of these questions we are sure that the Type 2 Diabetes Demystified course is for you. A half-day focussing on the stuff that will really make a difference to people with type 2 diabetes fully updated to incorporate the NEW NICE Guidelines from 2022. We will cover everything assessing and managing risk, diagnosis, management and high impact lifestyle support, spotting emergencies and choosing drugs. 

The course will be available live on the date and on demand for 12 months after the date of purchase.
