Better outcomes

Flash and CGM primary healthcare education

pack available.

A

new suite of resources

has been put together

by the award-winning

EDEN (Effective Diabetes

Education Now) programme designed

to help healthcare professionals

working in primary care to increase

their knowledge of, and confidence

in, flash glucose monitoring and

continuous glucose monitoring

(CGM).

While the use of flash glucose

monitoring and CGM has been

proven to improve time in target

glucose range, quality of life and

reduce the risk of hospital admission

for severe hypoglycaemia and

diabetic ketoacidosis, access to these

technologies has previously been

limited only to some people living

with Type 1 diabetes who required

support from secondary care - or to

those who could afford to self-fund

these systems.

However, the updated

NICE guidelines in March 2022

recommended access to flash glucose

monitoring and CGM for all people

living with Type 1 diabetes, as well

as for some living with Type 2. As a

result, many more people throughout

the UK will have access to such

technology, with many prescriptions

coming in primary care. Increasing

knowledge and confidence amongst

healthcare professionals in order

to safely implement these changes

is therefore essential, as Professor

Pratik Choudhary, Professor of

Diabetes, Leicester Diabetes Centre,

University of Leicester, explains:

"The latest NICE guidelines provide

greater access to glucose sensing

for people with insulin-treated

diabetes. A large proportion of these

are managed in primary care, so it's

really important that we support

primary care colleagues, increasing

awareness, knowledge and familiarity

with these systems and the data they

generate, so that we can provide our

patients with better outcomes and

quality of life."

Available nationally for all

healthcare professionals in primary

care, the education package,

Implementing Glucose Sensing in

Primary Care, consists of five key

education elements:

1. Initial conversation piece and

detailed core knowledge - video

resources

2. Case studies for Type 1 and Type

2 diabetes - video and slide

resources

3. Product training package, Abbott

and Dexcom - e-learning

4. Implementation guide - web

based

5. Implementation and evaluation

guides - internal report

Readers may wish to inform their

own healthcare professionals of

this resource.
