About the Cambridge Diabetes Education Programme

Diabetes 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 healthcare sectors and disciplines.

CDEP should not be seen as the only diabetes education tool for healthcare 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 ward staff are much more likely to complete online training, when given protected time to do so, than attend ward-based, face to face training .
