Building Practice Nurse Capacity


Practice Nurses can play a pivotal role in prevention of, and management of diabetes in general practice leading to improved patient outcomes, improved team work and revenue for the practice. Education was given to them in the form of short courses to help them better understand their role in identifying diabetes, when to refer patients to specialist services, and providing basic self-management diabetes education. It also aimed to give the nurses confidence to educate their patients about diabetes progression and the importance of timely medication.
