Diabetes is now an important public health problem, with an estimated 463 million people with diabetes across the world in 2019, a figure that is projected to rise to 700 million by 2045 as per the IDF Diabetes Atlas, 2019. In India, there were an estimated 77 million people with diabetes in 2019, a figure that may rise to 134 million by 2045.
It is estimated that about half of all cases of diabetes are not diagnosed, and even of those diagnosed, only about a half are put on treatment. Even among these, at least half are not managed properly.
Several reasons have been attributed for this, like lack of proper knowledge among patients about the disease and its management, dearth of adequate support and care, psycho-social and behavioural issues, etc.
In such a scenario, the role of a diabetes educator becomes crucial to ensure proper management and care of diabetes by working with the patients and their caregivers.
In view of this, experts at the Chellaram Diabetes Institute have developed a unique online Certificate Course for Diabetes Educators (CCDE), which aims to build the capacity of diabetes educators in the management and care of diabetes.
The online platform allows for the course participant to learn at his/her own pace, and via, desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile.
The certified professional will report increased knowledge of the current diabetes devices and technology, improved comfort with this technology, and strategies to implement the use of technology with their patients.
