Important diabetes resource available through CDEP

Health and social care staff can now access the Diabetes 10 Point Training (D10PT) programme as part of the Cambridge Diabetes Education Programme (CDEP).

The innovative training programme was developed by Diabetes Nurse Consultant Ruth Miller to help healthcare staff to access basic diabetes training relevant to their roles.

CDEP has now partnered with the North West London Integrated Care System and North West London Clinical Commissioning Group to host the training so healthcare staff and carers working with people with diabetes have free online access to D10PT.

CDEP Lead Candice Ward said: “Having been a huge admirer of Diabetes 10 Point Training, we are thrilled to welcome this excellent programme to be part of the CDEP family. Arming health staff and carers with access to diabetes education is fundamental to providing high-quality care–this partnership will ensure widespread access across North West London, and beyond, to the knowledge needed to achieve this.”

Dr Mathi Woodhouse, GP and Clinical Lead for Diabetes North West London, said: “This training programme has already provided great results in terms of improving staff knowledge of managing patients with diabetes and improving safety. The confidence this has provided teams previously underserved has been well received, including mental teams and care homes.”

Diabetes Nurse Consultant Ruth Miller, who developed the D10PT programme, added: “The exciting collaboration of D10PT with CDEP will vastly magnify the reach of basic diabetes training to all staff working across health and social care sectors. Our ambition is that by ensuring all staff have access to basic diabetes knowledge, it will be possible to provide the safest and highest quality of care for people living with diabetes.”

The D10PT helps support staff’s knowledge and boost their confidence in providing basic diabetes care, covering the difference between the types of diabetes, blood glucose monitoring, hypo-and hyperglycaemia and insulin and medication safely, as well as feet, mental health and eating with diabetes.

The D10PT modules are specifically designed for adult inpatients workers, adult social care workers,community nursing teams and adult inpatient and community mental health teams.

The online training is delivered via short videos with links for further reading and quizzes.

It takes around an hour to finish and does not have to be completed in one go. Completing a topic generates a certificate, reflection document and CDEP rewards.
