Diabetes Care, Education and Management

University of Dundee


Ninewells Campus


The burden of long term non-communicable disease (NCD) is a challenge facing all health care organizations at an International level. The effect of this challenge is not just on increasing health care costs and an intolerable workload for health care professionals but a recognition that the current health care system needs to change fundamentally in order to cope with future demands. The Diabetes Care and Education programme has been created by the University of Dundee to aid healthcare organisations who wish to equip their workforce with the clinical knowledge, leadership and educational skills required to meet this challenge and develop a multi-disciplinary approach to creating transformational change appropriate to the healthcare system in their country.

Dundee has an international reputation for diabetes research, education and informatics developments. With the global growing prevalence of diabetes there is an increasing need for healthcare professionals to upskill in diabetes care and understand how to organise healthcare for the efficient management of chronic diseases.

The course has been designed to allow students to remain in their jobs while studying and for their studies to be able to have an immediate impact in their work environment.
