Working together to reduce inequality and help healthcare professionals better support people living with diabetes
The Diabetes UK Continuous Professional Development platform
Lilly UK are supporting our Continuous Professional Development (CPD) platform for healthcare professionals. The platform offers a series of online courses, accredited by the Royal College of Nursing, aimed at giving healthcare professionals the confidence, skills, and resources to better support people living with diabetes.
Since we launched the first module, Emotional Wellbeing, in June 2021, we’ve received excellent feedback, leading to the development of additional modules in 2022-2023: Understanding Diabetes, Remission, Technology and Medicines and Treatment.
We’re very grateful to Lilly UK for their support of this vital work, helping healthcare professionals to provide better diabetes care.
Tackling inequalities in diabetes
Based on factors outside their direct control, people with diabetes experience systematic, unfair and avoidable differences in their diabetes care, the treatment they receive and the opportunities they have to lead healthy lives. Lilly UK are generously supporting our work to tackle the inequalities that exist in diabetes care.
In 2023, Lilly supported our first ever Tackling Inequality Commission which brought together an expert panel to determine the biggest challenges for people with diabetes facing health inequality. The findings from the commission are helping us take the steps we need to support people living with diabetes in areas of deprivation, ensuring that everyone can live in a world where diabetes does no harm. Lilly provided funding, but they had no involvement or influence over the commission.
Our partnership continues to evolve in other areas too – Lilly UK were platinum sponsors of our Diabetes UK Professional Conference 2023.
