CDEP is based on a series of national diabetes competency frameworks that help structure the nature and levels of skills required by all healthcare staff in the diabetes care and management.


CDEP is currently endorsed by Diabetes UK, the Cambridge University Health Partnership and the British Dietetics Association. We are actively seeking further endorsement through other national bodies at this time.

Ongoing CPD and revalidation

In addition to practitioners receiving certificates for topics completed, CDEP has a reflection tool as well as a secure feedback portal to collect evidence of learning and applying it in practice for professional portfolios.
