Better education for the future of diabetes care theme for World Diabetes Day 2022
It is estimated that more than 530 million people are currently living with diabetes worldwide, with millions more at risk of developing the condition.
A World Diabetes Day statement said: “The rising number of people affected by diabetes is putting added strain on healthcare systems. Healthcare professionals must know how to detect and diagnose the condition early and provide the best possible care; while people living with diabetes need access to ongoing education to understand their condition and carry out the daily self-care essential to staying healthy and avoiding complications.”
A new online platform has been launched providing free interactive courses to help people with diabetes and their carers to understand and manage their condition.
For healthcare professionals, the IDF School of Diabetes offers a selection of free and premium online courses that help them to keep up-to-date with various aspects of diabetes management and treatment.
