Improving Diabetes Competencies in Dietitians

Summary

The specialist diabetes dietetic team has been inundated with requests from dietetic colleagues of all grades and across both the acute and community teams to support them in delivering dietary advice to patients with diabetes. To assist them the team developed a diabetes competency training programme for dieticians working. 75% of dieticians within the adult service Oxfordshire have since attended it and assessments have shown the structured education improved diabetes competencies in dieticians.
