Upon successful completion of the module (a 100% score on a fi nal questionnaire) a Certifi cate of Diabetes Management is issued. The module has greatly improved diabetes care within the Trust.
Safe use of insulin e-learning module — University Hospitals of Leicester
Insulin prescribing errors are common as shown by the six-year UK data that led to an initiative to improve insulin safety, including free access to an e-learning module (NHS Diabetes, National Patient Safety Agency). This e-learning module with in-built evaluation aims to improve the knowledge of all healthcare professionals (HCPs) on the safe use of insulin by completing a specifi cally designed e-learning module. It was developed by a multi-disciplinary team from three hospitals and the virtual college was project managed by Diabetes UK.
