Interdisciplinary team working in partnership with people experiencing diabetes embraces the skills to deliver effective, efficient and efficacious diabetes care.

What's covered in this course?

Contemporary evidence emphasises the partnership working potential of interdisciplinary working of effective teams, but also highlights where collaborative practices of teams or team members can place restrictions on services and lack growth of psychological or service development opportunities in diabetes care.

This module investigates team working with a focus on unleashing successful opportunities for service development recognition whilst engaging in a culture of evidence, person-to-person communication, humanity and concern to support the delivery of person centred effective and individualised diabetes care.
