This useful, practical workshop addresses one of the most unmet needs in diabetes care - how to provide excellent diabetes care in Care Home and Home Care settings. There are often multiple staff of all grades and backgrounds and residents and clients with more than one condition and/or experiencing multiple care needs.  Diabetes can impact on other conditions, as well as needing regular attention itself, so it is particularly important for staff to be aware and attentive to diabetes care needs, in order to keep residents and clients in optimum health and wellbeing

This workshop supports participants to gain more practical knowledge of diabetes itself, eating and drinking, medication, monitoring, foot checks and the need for care plans.  Most importantly, the workshop helps them learn from and with each other and to devise a workable action plan for future developments.

Participants will leave with new knowledge and confidence to manage diabetes and diabetes related situations with residents and clients, and resources to put in place systems and processes to support this in their place of work. They will have participated in an enjoyable learning experience provided by experts in diabetes, education and facilitation
