Online diabetes education for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers

Date posted: 9 July 2014

Diabetes Queensland has developed a Online diabetes education training program for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers/Health Practitioners.

The online training scheduled to be launched in October 2014 has eight modules and uses story-telling, case studies, interactive activities and engaging graphics to deliver diabetes information.

The aim of the training is to increase diabetes knowledge and skills so that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers/Health Practitioners feel more confident to support clients, family and community members living with diabetes.

The training has no time restrictions and although it is self-directed, participants will have ongoing access to an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Diabetes team including an Aboriginal Diabetes Educator. Upon completion, all participants will receive a certificate for 27 hours of diabetes education which Health Practitioners can use towards continuing professional development requirements.

Diabetes Queensland is working closely with the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Worker Association (NATSIHWA) to develop additional career pathways for Health Workers undertaking the online training and for those interested in further diabetes education.
