Online Upskilling for Rural Health Professionals

Diabetes WA is offering rural or remote primary health care professionals in WA a unique opportunity to complete the NADC online diabetes course, with added mentoring and support.

About the training

The National Association of Diabetes Centres (NADC) have developed an online diabetes care course for health professionals in a general care setting. This interactive online learning tool can be completed at your own pace and is suitable for anyone who finds it challenging to travel for training days.

There are 10 learning modules covering topics such as diabetes medicines, chronic and acute complications, groups with special needs (indigenous, CALD, pregnant women, paediatrics, adolescents and seniors) and self-monitoring. All modules are complemented by videos.

Assessment is online, and participants have three months to complete the course content.  A certificate will be provided upon completion.

Diabetes WA will provide 25 free registrations (worth $594 each) to primary care health professionals working in a rural or remote practice.

Diabetes WA will also provide a credentialled diabetes educator (CDE) as a mentor to support participants through the training process.
