Diabetes Education Module for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers

 

Overview

Target audience: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers and Health Practitioners

Course summary: This online self-directed course aims to increase the knowledge of diabetes and enhance the support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers and Health Practitioners can provide to clients, family and community members living with diabetes.

The online training uses story-telling, case studies, interactive activities and engaging graphics to deliver diabetes information.

Although this course is self-directed, participants will have ongoing access to support from Diabetes Queensland's (Qld) Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Team including an Aboriginal Diabetes Educator. The Australian Diabetes Educators Association (ADEA) provides IT support for the module but not student support.

Upon completion of the course participants will receive a certificate for 27 hours of diabetes education which Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Practitioners can use towards continuing professional development requirements.

There is a voluntary online evaluation survey participants can fill in once they have completed the module and covers content and technical issues. Information from the surveys is used to review and improve the course.

This course was developed on behalf of Diabetes Australia and the National Diabetes Services Scheme by Diabetes Qld and the Australian Diabetes Educators Association (ADEA).

The course is endorsed by ADEA for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers and Health Practitioners.

Fee payable: No

Delivery mode: Online

To access the course:  Participants will need to contact Diabetes Queensland by email for assistance.
