Clinical Presentation and Management of Diabetes Complications and Cardiovascular Disease

Module code: MD7004

Module co-ordinators: Dr Sudesna Chatterejee, Janette Barnett  

The delivery of high standard diabetes care requires a competent and knowledgeable workforce, able to apply a critical evidence based approach to their clinical practice.

This module will provide students with the theoretical underpinning and evidence for the key components of diabetes care:

  • Presentation and management of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes
  • Screening, identification, treatment and management of micro and macro vascular complications
  • Meeting the needs of specific groups for example pregnancy, foot problems, in-patient care, medical emergencies and multi-ethnic groups

Throughout this module attention will be given to the importance of person-centred care and strategies to embed this approach into practice. Case studies will be used to encourage interactive and experiential learning. This module equips students with skills to critically evaluate your practice.
