Module 1. Overview of diabetes care



Diabetes is on the rise in people with a disability and so too the need for training to enable their support people to help them with their self care.

Jayne Lehmann RN CDE has designed the Diabetes Care in the Community on-line education course for disability support workers, carers and family members. Participants gain the knowledge and skills required to provide quality diabetes care to support a person with an intellectual disability.

Module 1 – Overview of Diabetes Care is the first of three modules in the training program and provides an overall update. It is good for people who are not on insulin and focuses on the lifestyle management of this condition.

Participants who are required to check blood glucose levels and/or administer insulin will need to also successfully complete:

  •  Module 2 Blood Glucose Monitoring
  •  Module 3 Insulin support and administration


  • Purchase online skills review time to have their blood glucose monitoring and insulin administration techniques checked by a Credentialled Diabetes Educator.
  • Contacts: E:          M:  0412 102 048
