Digital Safety Training Improving Ward Staff Insulin Competency and Confidence by Cambridge Diabetes Education Programme
“It was a great honour winning a QiC Diabetes Award in 2019. The Safe Use of Insulin in Hospital digital training was delivered in collaboration with Dr Sam Rice, Chris Cottrell and PocketMedic. We are all very proud of the training and the positive impact it is having on ward staff’s competency, confidence and guideline familiarity in a variety of organisations. Many more trusts are now considering implementing it as a diabetes staff training tool to reduced clinical incidents and improve insulin safety. As a result of success of CDEP’s hospital-focussed insulin safety training, we developed a second insulin safety training package for staff working in the community, which was launched in September 2019, increasing the reach and impact of our online insulin safety training. In March 2020, we will launch a series of 1 minute films focussing on various aspects of insulin therapy further enriching the insulin safety resources offered by this training.”
