This subject encourages students to link theory to practice, facilitating the development of core competencies for diabetes educators stipulated by the Australian Diabetes Educators Association (ADEA). Workshop activities focus on care of the client with diabetes from the perspective of multiple health disciplines, and encourage students to think critically about their specific role as a diabetes educator. Formal clinical placement and additional professional practice exposure support these activities which, along with independent study, consolidate essential skills and knowledge for the diabetes educator. The subject is informed by evidence-based practice and guidelines for client-centred diabetes education and management, both in the workshop and clinical settings.
