Diabetes 10 Point Training for Adult Social Care Workers (Care Home and Home Care Workers)
Welcome to the Adult Social Care Workers course
The information in this programme is a useful resource to provide knowledge and support for family carers of people living with diabetes in the community.
We recognise and pay tribute to the invaluable and crucial role that social care workers and carers play in caring for our community.
This Diabetes 10 Point Training programme was developed to ensure that all staff working in care and nursing homes and as home care workers, have a basic knowledge of diabetes and understand how it can impact the people in their care.
Care and nursing homes are not used exclusively by people who need support due to old age and dementia. Some residential and care homes also cater for younger residents who may live with learning disabilities, mental ill health, addiction, autism or other care needs. This programme sets out to also address the specific needs of individuals living with these needs.
The training has been taken up by thousands of staff and has won awards and recognition for the improvement of care.
This training programme for Adult Social Care Workers has been made possible through the valuable input from Shamim Jivraj, Lead Pharmacist for Adult Health, NHS Brent Clinical Commissioning Group
