The Cambridge Diabetes Education Programme was designed and tested by a multi-disciplinary, diabetes specialist team, consisting of nurses, dietitians, podiatrists, health care assistants, general practitioners and hospital consultants.
It is based on the UK, nationally recognised, diabetes framework of competencies for healthcare practitioners, to ensure that they have the right diabetes skills and knowledge to support patients living with diabetes.
CDEP's content is continually reviewed and further developed to ensure the learning opportunities offered are evidence-based, up-to-date and relevant to the target audience. CDEP's outcomes are routinely audited to ensure that we are meeting healthcare practitioners' needs.
In our last audit (May 2020 n= 29,054), an impressive 99.98% of our CDEP users reported that undertaking a CDEP topic, either confirms their high level of diabetes knowledge (14%) or alternatively, supports an improvement in their diabetes knowledge (86%).
For those reporting an improvement, the breakdown across our 3 outcomes domains is as follows:
Good refresher on an important topic. Addition of videos to watch was very helpful.
Useful topic to refresh understanding and appropriate management at home. Videos were good to demonstrate people's experiences of hypos.
This CPD topic allowed me to gain knowledge of hypos which I was unsure of before.
The information is well presented.
Excellent resources for this topic!
