HNY Diabetes Nursing Training

Offered through three separate events across the Humber and North Yorkshire area, this professional learning opportunity provided a chance for colleagues to learn, alongside their peers and enhance their skills to further improve patient care. Practice nurse colleagues had the opportunity to learn more about national guidance, and best practice that contributed to further enhancing their skills in diabetes management.

The training concentrated on:

  • Empowering primary care staff and service users in managing symptoms of diabetes through education and awareness of 8 care processes in primary care.
  • Increasing prevention and proactive management of patients with diabetes. ​

The overreaching aims of the events were to support clinical colleagues to improve the treatment and care for diabetic patients through improved achievement of the 8 care processes in primary care, in line with NICE guidance. Also, to raise awareness of the national programmes for pre-diabetic patients, and to give more patients the opportunity to achieve remission for type 2 diabetes.​
