As a centre for award winning training, the DESMOND Programme now has a number of training days available, including our DESMOND 1-day Core training which looks at the philosophy, theories and behaviours that underpin all of our modules. This training is the first step in all Educator training and is also available for anyone looking to find out more about the DESMOND Programme and what makes it stand apart from other diabetes education programmes or for those looking to develop their own education programme or just for general interest.
We have a dedicated secure area for both Educator and Coordinators on this site. This password-protected area will form the first steps of Social Networking where you'll have your own messaging system and be able to communicate with other people in the DESMOND Community.
