Diabetes Queensland and CheckUp have developed an innovative new e-learning initiative Diabetes Connect, supporting time-poor GPs and allied health professionals like nurses and dieticians.
Ms Trute said Diabetes Connect had been developed in response to requests from the health sector for an education program that would ensure GPs and allied health practitioners have access to the latest information on diabetes management.
'Diabetes is a ticking time bomb that could be placing more than 50,000 Queenslanders at a higher risk of debilitating complications like limb amputation, blindness and kidney disease because more experts are needed to support them,' she said.
Health Minister Lawrence Springborg said Diabetes Connect is a cost-effective way of ensuring front-line health practitioners have the information they need to support their communities.
