What graduates say about the programme:
“At the age of 54, I was very nervous doing this programme, but I am delighted I did so. The most valuable learnings include Chronic Disease Management Methods and Disease Register best practice. These skills can transfer across any chronic disease and I can now engage very competently not only with diabetes patients but also heart failure and COPD presentations. I would do this programme again in a heart beat.”
Dr Paddy Davern, Class of 2017
“I thoroughly enjoyed sharing my clinical experiences with colleagues from other countries. My diabetes competency improved hugely. Particularly the skills for changing patient’s behaviour via motivational interview, the updated knowledge about new medication in diabetes and caring for patients with diabetes in special circumstances.”
Dr Dalal Al Hajeri, Class of 2017
