This course is for doctors, nurses, allied health professionals and pharmacists who are involved in diabetes care. It aims to develop the scientific basis for improvement in diabetes clinical practice and public health using robust epidemological, laboratory and social science methodologies.

Diabetes is becoming an increasingly common condition amongst every population group, both in the developed and developing countries. It has a major impact on the physical, psychological and general wellbeing of individuals and their families. It can lead to disabilities, for example blindness, chronic morbidity and mortality through heart disease, stroke and renal failure. Yet, there is evidence that effective treatment can increase life expectancy, reduce the risk of complications and even delay or prevent onset. This course will prepare you to take an evidence-based approach to diabetic care and will allow you to specialise in an area of your choice. It has been developed with clinical colleagues and blends the theoretical perspectives with practicalities of implementing an effective diabetic care programme. This course emphasises the effective use of multidisciplinary teams in problem solving and patient care.

You will attend hospital visits with consultant physicians, consultant surgeons and other diabetes specialists. The part-time route is more flexible. The course is based at QMU, but there is opportunity to study the international dimension of diabetes and apply the principles to care in developing countries.
