Recent review: “Myself and my colleague recently attended the ‘diabetes awareness and blood glucose monitoring & glucometer training’. There is only one word that I can describe this training as – FANTASTIC. With the knowledge of the trainers, we learnt more than we ever have regarding diabetes training and my colleague has been in care for over 20 years! The trainers were able to answer any questions we needed answering and sign posted us to the relevant information to provide the best care we can for those living with diabetes. I would highly recommend this training to anyone."
Summary of scheduled open workshops (face to face)
The following workshops are regularly run as open workshops at various venues (see below for locations, dates and cost):
a combined “Diabetes Awareness Training and Blood Glucose Monitoring & Glucometer Training”
“Diabetes Update for Registered Nurses”
“Diabetic Foot Screening”
"Diabetes & Healthy Eating"

Our workshops are relevant for the health and care workforce looking after adults living with diabetes; developed for people working in care homes, for domiciliary care providers, GP practices (practice nurses and healthcare assistants), or in community roles.
In July 2020 we expanded our service to work with the beauty and wellness sector to help people who provide foot related treatments to understand the 'diabetic foot'more fully, including when and when not to treat. More information can be found via the 'hands on feet' link on our workshops page.
DUET diabetes can help people to upskill and increase their confidence when treating or looking after people with diabetes. The ultimate aim being to make a positive difference to those living with diabetes and their quality of life.
More information, including the content of all our workshops, can be found on our workshops page.
