Primary Health Care Nurse and Complex Diabetes Care
Primary health care nurses play a significant role in the delivery of care to people with diabetes in primary health care settings.
Often the ‘frontline’ in care, primary health care nurses must be prepared to meet the challenges of providing the best possible evidence based care to people with diabetes, despite the complexities in their condition. The ADEA online e-Learning module ‘Primary Health Care Nurses’ Care and Referral of People with Complex Diabetes Care Needs’ explores the role of primary health care nurses in the care of people with complex diabetes care needs.
The e-Learning module looks at scope of practice, decision-making and pathways of referral to other health professionals, person-centred care and other support services available to people with diabetes and is available HERE.
This eLearning course was developed by the Australian Diabetes Educators Association with funding from the National Diabetes Services Scheme.
