About the Cambridge Diabetes Education Programme

Bite-sized competency-based e-learning...

CDEP supports healthcare organisations deliver staff diabetes training to meet the outcomes identified as part of their wider diabetes implementation plans. These may include:

CDEP provides accessible, targeted, online diabetes education for front-line staff in order to promote a good, minimum level of diabetes care across all health and social care sectors and disciplines.

CDEP should not be seen as the only diabetes education tool for health and social care organisations, but a valuable tool to help improve basic diabetes knowledge. It serves to complement face-to-face training events, virtual clinics, locally enhanced diabetes services, etc.

Our research shows that staff are much more likely to complete online training, when given protected time to do so, than attend ward-based, face to face training.
