Course Description

This course aims to increase understanding of the management of diabetes in people who also have dementia, depression or a severe mental illness and the impact one condition has on the management of the other.

This online training has been developed to highlight the importance of recognising the relationship between dementia, depression and severe mental illnesses. This course is intended to serve as a helpful resource for carers and health care professionals working in nursing and residential homes, carers and community nurses working with elderly people living in their own homes.

Why take this course?
Upon completion of this online training course, learners will recognise the impact that a mental health illness can have on the management of diabetes, and how to maximise the benefits and safety or diabetes treatments while minimising the risks.

This training material will help learners understand how patients with dementia, depression and severe mental illnesses (SMIs) may struggle to manage their diabetes on their own. Learners will be able to recognise the factors to why it is often difficult to identify the symptoms of diabetes with someone who has a mental health illness, and how the risk of diabetes is higher with a patient who has dementia, depression or a severe mental illness.
