Description

Overview
The number of patients with diabetes, in particular, Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), has been steadily increasing with over 382 million patients of which over 95% are Type 2 whilst diabetes Type 1 accounts for around 5%. It is estimated that this number will rise to more than 560 million by year 2030, i.e. an increase of 147%, with the largest increase in prevalence in developing countries. Diabetes is the fourth leading cause of global mortality by disease.
Over the past three years, the Faculty of Science has had extensive consultations with a significant number of primary and secondary care physicians, diabetes specialist nurse practitioners and pharmaceutical industry to develop comprehensive post-graduate programme on diabetes. During the consultation, we identified the need at local, national and international level for the up-to-date training in diabetes management. Based on this, we have developed a focussed programme of study which will provide opportunity to potential candidates to gain up-to-date scientific, medical and clinical knowledge on management of diabetes. Moreover, the course is designed to improve clinical skills required for effective management of diabetes, ultimately aimed at improving patient outcome.
We aim to provide students with:
A rich, dynamic and multidisciplinary learning environment of diabetes education for health care providers with various professional capacities/responsibilities within UK healthcare system;
Evidence-based knowledge in and clinical exposure (case relevant role plays) to diabetes care;
Up-to-date skills in management of diabetes within primary and community-based health care systems;
The ability to apply specialist diabetes knowledge in the workplace to improve care standards and practice;
The advanced research and clinical skills necessary to carry out in-depth study in diabetes.
