The free online course ‘Understanding Insulin’ was developed to benefit insulin users worldwide. There was a need to improve insulin knowledge among healthcare professionals (HCPs), people with diabetes and their carers. Insulin-related errors are common both in the UK and internationally, increasing the risk of adverse complications and poor health outcomes. In the National Diabetes Audit, 49% of patients on insulin had experienced an insulin-related error. Many HCPs across the healthcare professions are not competent with using and managing insulin. There are also gaps in insulin knowledge for people with diabetes and their carers.
