A half day course covering all the essentials that will make a real difference to people with Type 2 diabetes and our confidence in supporting them.

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 when metformin doesn’t do the trick?
  • 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. 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.

Please note that no printed handbook or access to GPCPD will be provided with this course. All the resources required to attend will be downloadable from the webinar platform.

A half-day course covering the essentials for delivering what we believe is one of the most rewarding parts of primary care, if not the whole of medicine.

We will cover:

  • Identifying people who will benefit from supportive care: the pragmatic way. 
  • Different disease trajectories: challenges and opportunities for support and proactive planning.
  • Tricky symptom management: including pain, nausea and vomiting, breathlessness and bone pain. 
  • Handling tricky conversations: Advance Care Planning, DNACPR and hydration and nutrition.
  • Managing complex patients at home, and how to avoid escalation and admission. 
  • Palliative care emergencies and why this idea isn’t a misnomer.
  • Hugs and hand holding? Post-COVID palliative care: discussion and some practical ideas about how we might find a new equilibrium for how we consult with our end-of-life care patients.

In this half-day event on ‘Older people and frailty’, we will explore key concepts and skills which are crucial in supporting our older patients - both at home and in nursing home settings. Using a combination of teaching strategies, live interactive cases, polls and discussion we will explore:

  • What is normal ageing…and what isn’t?

  • How to do a really good medication review and feel good about deprescribing!
  • The 3D’s of deterioration: delirium, depression and dementia
  • Common primary care problems: falls, recurrent infections and requests for antibiotics.

And we will tie all this together with real-life case scenarios and tools you can use once you are back at the surgery, on home visits or out in nursing homes the next day.

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