Free sensor technology toolkit launched
A new free sensor technology toolkit has been launched by Trend Diabetes
Community nurses can now access a new educational toolkit on sensor technology thanks to a leading diabetes organisation.
Launched by Trend Diabetes, the free toolkit can be used by anyone wanting to become proficient in using sensor technology including practice nurses, clinical pharmacists, GPs and care home staff.
It consists of:
- A video podcast on the full information on how to use this new technology, how to interpret the data from this new technology and how people with diabetes visited by community nurses will benefit from this new technology
- An e-learning module to use as an assessment tool with a downloadable certificate of completion
- A competency framework on sensor technology, that can be used to measure competence and confidence
- A sample policy to cover clinical governance and vicarious liability for all when using this new technology
- A revalidation form
- An evaluation form.
Trend Diabetes is also launching a new e-learning platform today to mark World Diabetes Day.
