Diabetes Educator Certificate Program
February 15, 2018
A Thirteen-Week Online Certificate Program
15 February-24 May 2018
Diabetes education is a subspecialty for many health professionals, and this online certificate program will provide you with the tools you need to educate your patients. Participants will enhance their knowledge of all aspects of diabetes management including disease process, glycemic targets, medication and nutritional management, and diabetic complications. We will also explore self-management strategies and education theory to enhance the education of patients living with, or at risk for, diabetes. Interprofessional learning is a significant component of this certificate program, and we welcome physical therapists, registered nurses and nurse practitioners, pharmacists, registered kinesiologists, dietitians and nutritionists, social and mental health workers, physicians, occupational therapists and other registered health professionals.
