DESMOND training dates

OVERVIEW

As a centre for award-winning training, the DESMOND Programme now has a number of training days and options available:

DESMOND Core training, a 1-day course which looks at the philosophy, theories and behaviours that underpin all of our modules. This training is the first step in 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. Please scroll to the bottom of the page for our application form.

Module-Specific training, a 1-day course which introduces each Educator to the curriculum and resources they will need to deliver their chosen module to patients (see below for dates                 and modules available below). Please scroll to the bottom of the page for our application form.

Lay Educator support – If you/your team member are lay personnel or non-registered Healthcare Professional (HCP), we offer additional support prior to attending the above two             training days for the Newly Diagnosed and Foundation (NDF) module. In Spring 2019 we will be launching our NDF Lay Educator eLearning module, until then we are offering a mix of a paper-based workbook and login for our patient-facing online programme. Please scroll to the bottom of the page for our application form.
