Manage Diabetes

This high intensity program is delivered by AHPRA Registered Nurses.

This program is a co-requisite with injecting where a person with diabetes requires support to implement their diabetes management plan and need regular injections they cannot administer themselves.

This program will allow support staff to support clients who have a diabetes management plan developed and overseen by a health practitioner such as a registered nurse or doctor. Staff need to have been trained by a health practitioner such as a registered nurse and have access to the management plan before providing these supports.

Course outcomes:

  • Support a person to implement their diabetes management plan
  • Identify and respond to hypoglycaemic episodes
  • Monitor and record blood glucose levels (BGLs) or sugar levels (BSLs)
  • Follow procedures to calculate dose requirements under direction of a registered nurse
  • Have a basic understanding of diabetes
  • Factors that affect BGLs/BSLs
  • Methods of managing insulin levels including different types of insulin
  • Variables that affect insulin deliver such as timing, site selection and rotation
  • Common symptoms and risks of low or unstable blood glucose/sugar levels and related responses

QHA recommends that any provider providing supports for clients with a diabetes management plan have access to a registered nurse or health practitioner to provide support and advise to support staff.
