CPPE Type 2 Diabetes Focal Point - Portsmouth

The aim of this resource is to update your knowledge of Type 2 Diabetes. We will explore how you can use your knowledge to support patients to manage the condition, reduce complications and improve outcomes.

Please book now as we expect this to be a very popular event.

Around 1 in 20 people in UK have type 2 diabetes1 so it is likely that you will come across people with this condition in your day-to-day practise. Whether you’re a technician helping to identify patients for MUR, a community pharmacist who will undertake that MUR, or a practice pharmacist preparing to undertake a medication review, there’s a lot you can do to support your patients. 

If you are in a community role, are you aware of the key areas of support for people with type 2 diabetes. Can you signpost them to relevant information and promote the uptake of structured education? 

Or if you are a pharmacy professional in general practice, although you might not be offering specialist diabetes clinics, you will be supporting people with type 2 diabetes as part of other clinical roles. Are you prepared for that aspect of your patient’s care? 

To find out more about how you can help your patients to self-manage their type 2 diabetes in community and general practice, book on to a CPPE Type 2 diabetes focal point workshop
