Diabetes and the Older Person

This module is aimed at professionals involved in the delivery of diabetes care to the Older Person with diabetes.

Managing older people with diabetes can often be complex due to the high risk of co-morbidities, delayed diagnosis and hospital acute admissions.  Care can also be challenging where patients have dementia.
