As the diet of a person living with diabetes, whether type 1 or type 2, has an influence on their blood glucose and overall diabetes management, nutrition therapy is an essential component of diabetes healthcare strategy.
While this intervention is delivered by dietitians, products that are recommended for dietary management of diabetes are commonly purchased from community pharmacies.
Pharmacists are well positioned to assist patients living with diabetes with basic education and counselling on topics such as blood glucose management, diet and exercise.
Guild Learning and Development is therefore pleased to have partnered with Abbott Nutrition in the development of a new online module titled ‘The role of medical nutrition therapy in managing blood glucose levels’.
Guild Learning and Development say the module highlights the role of medical nutrition therapy in managing blood glucose levels and, by updating their knowledge in this area, pharmacists will be better equipped to assist patients living with diabetes with lifestyle advice.
Guild Learning and Development acknowledges the support and assistance of Abbott Nutrition in the development of this course.
This activity has been accredited for 1 hour of Group 1 CPD (or 1 CPD credit) suitable for inclusion in an individual pharmacist’s CPD plan which can be converted to 1 hour of Group 2 CPD (or 2 CPD credits) upon successful completion of relevant assessment activities.
