Summary of planned & scheduled virtual workshops (via Zoom)

As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, we are now running some virtual workshops via Zoom.  As with all our workshops, they will be run by experienced healthcare professionals.

 

We want to ensure that our customers (present and future) have access to evidence-based, clinically relevant diabetes training appropriate to their role / workplace.  The ultimate aim being to make a positive difference to people living with diabetes and their quality of life.

More information about the full range of our workshops, including their content, can be found on our workshops page.

Our face to face workshops are held as small, interactive groups which include activities and practical sessions.  In the virtual setting this is less easy to achieve, however we will endeavour to accommodate interactive elements to the workshops and video based demonstrations if live ones are not possible.  Learners who attend a virtual workshop and wish to attend a face to face workshop at a later date to experience the practical element of the training (and have a refresher!), will qualify for a discount for the face to face workshop.

If you or your organisation has a particular interest or training need relating to any of the workshops within our training portfolio, please do not hesitate to contact us.  We are happy to discuss how we can work together to help 'virtually' until our face to face training is (safely) possible again.

See below for currently upcoming workshops.  More workshops/dates will be continue to be scheduled over the coming weeks, 
please register your interest by emailing us at
info@duetdiabetes.co.uk or using the form on our 'contact us' page.

Bookings/payments

Our virtual workshops will be advertised on the 'eventbrite'* ticketing platform.  If you are unable to pay by credit/debit card or Paypal via 'eventbrite', please contact us to discuss other payment options (i.e. cheque or BACS).  All places booked must be paid for in advance.  Prices advertised include an electronic copy of the slides presented during the training session along with a 'useful links/resources' handout.  An electronic attendance certificate will be emailed to the learners after the workshop has taken place.

Upcoming virtual workshops

In response to the need to treat and care for an ageing population who live with diabetes, ​and because of the significant adverse effect of the coronavirus pandemic on this sector of the population, this new workshop has been developed collaboratively by Lynne Reedman (DUET diabetes) and Professor Alan Sinclair* from the foundation for Diabetes Research in Older People (fDROP) and Kings College London.

Framed around existing guidelines including the ‘A Covid-19 Response action – Diabetes Management in Care Homes’ guidance issued in May 2020, this new workshop focuses on supporting care homes to ensure that staff have the skills and confidence with which to appropriately care for the acutely unwell older person living with diabetes.

Who would benefit from attending this workshop?  It is relevant for managers/deputy managers, clinical leads, nurses, diabetes leads/’champions’, senior carers/support workers (unregistered practitioners); highlighting the need for people working in different roles to work as a team to benefit the person they are caring for.

The aims of the workshop are to:

  • increase skills and confidence within this care sector by providing the knowledge and tools with which to appropriately care for the acutely unwell older resident living with diabetes

  • minimise morbidity and mortality from acute illness (such as Covid-19) in the older adult living with diabetes; and maintain or even improve quality of life (QoL).

Learning objectives:

- Gain an overview of what diabetes is (including signs and symptoms) along with greater awareness of implications
for the older adult

- Understand how to manage high and low blood glucose levels – how this may manifest in the older person

- Obtain a greater understanding of diabetes related monitoring and how that alters in an unwell individual

- Understand how Covid-19 (and other serious infections) can cause serious acute illness in the older adult and which medications
may need to be stopped during acute illness

- Gain an understanding of frailty and the modifiable risk factors (linked with diabetes) of becoming unwell

- Have an awareness of how to do a basic foot examination and identify foot problems that should be reported promptly in acutely unwell residents with diabetes

- Understand current practice regarding End of Life Care, including monitoring and diabetes medication requirements

This workshop will be run as a live and interactive webinar session (maximum of 25 attendees) led by Professor Alan Sinclair* and Lynne Reedman - mix of slides and discussion (attendees will be able to ‘unmute’ and engage) lasting 3 hours, refreshment break included.

NEW WORKSHOP!

Managing Diabetes in the Acutely Unwell Older Person

In response to requests from some care providers to run this training virtually, we have scheduled this training to run for the first time as a live and interactive webinar session in February 2021.

The content will reflect the face to face workshop with some of the activities replaced with discussion. The main difference being the the inability to have a practical session for the learners to practice skills learnt during the theoretical session.  However pre-filmed demonstrations for performing 'quality assurance' of the device used and for undertaking a blood glucose test using a glucometer will be shared during the workshop. 

Dates: 26 April 2021 and 24 May 2021

Time: 9am - 3.30pm GMT (there will be lunch and refreshment breaks)

Cost: £58 per person

(cost includes electronic attendance certificate, a copy of the core slides shared during the session along with various 'handouts’ to further support learning and understanding).

Maximum number of learners: 25 - attendees will be able to ‘unmute’ and engage with the educator.
