Update from Duet Diabetes

We would like to share with you our updated Diabetes Information Postcard which, as well as providing competency statements for people working in care homes, contains some useful links for professionals involved in the care of people with diabetes such as:

·        the CQC guidance for inspectors which outlines the elements of good diabetes care – “guidance for CQC staff:  inspecting the quality of care for residents with diabetes mellitus living in care homes” (During her presentations, my colleague Helen Stephen made reference to this guidance)

·        Training, Research and Education for Nurses in Diabetes (TREND-UK)
