NEWS

REPORT

The role of Diabetes Educators

"Recent estimates from the IDF show

that one in 11 (463 million) adults live

with diabetes - this is expected to rise to

578 million over the next decade, so it is

crucial there are enough nurses and allied

health professionals to support people

living with the condition.

"The World Health Organisation

(WHO) reports a global shortfall of 5.9m

nurses. Without swift action, people living

with diabetes, or at high risk of developing

it, will be more vulnerable to life-changing

complications. This World Diabetes Day on

14 November, the IDF urged governments

and healthcare organisations to invest not

only in the recruitment of more nurses,

but also in their training, so they can

provide the best possible support to

people living with diabetes because the

role of the nurse is vital to helping people

with diabetes. A survey we conducted

found that four in five nurses (82%)

believe that governments are not doing

enough to provide professional training

in diabetes care. In addition, Covid-19

has put pressure on crucial healthcare

services that support people with chronic

conditions. The ongoing pandemic has

brought much anxiety and uncertainty.

Many people living with diabetes feel

overly cautious and reluctant to leave their

homes for treatment, or they no longer

have access to their regular care because

services have been scaled back.

"Moreover, many people with diabetes

have been shielding at home, unable

even to go out to do their own shopping

or exercise outdoors, which has had a

huge psychological impact. Diabetes

nurses in many countries have been

visiting these people at home. This has

been important, not only to help people

achieve good control of their blood sugar

levels but also to provide support and

advice where needed. In many countries

where diabetes care is more advanced,

nurses play a major role in helping people

with T!D adapt to new technologies,

including insulin infusion pumps and

glucose monitoring devices, and have

been at the forefront of the development

of telemedicine for people with diabetes

"Events since the outbreak of Covid19 have stretched

healthcare resources.

To tackle this, more nurses and other

allied healthcare professionals need to be

given more opportunities to improve their

understanding of diabetes."

New generation

"Education is the cornerstone of

healthcare, with new treatments and

services developing all the time. IDF is an

advocate for the promotion of diabetes

education and best practice and is playing

its part in helping nurses and other health

professionals further their professional

development.

"As part of this year's World Diabetes

Day campaign, nurses and healthcare

professionals can freely access the IDF

School of Diabetes course on the role

of the diabetes educator. The course is

certified by the European Accreditation

Council for Continuing Medical Education.

Upon completion, learners earn one

EACCME credit and receive a course

certificate.

"It is our hope that this type of initiative,

along with a collective resolve to invest

further in diabetes care and the training of

nurses, will help tackle the global impact

of diabetes."
