CVD & Diabetes Level 7 modules

Our modules, which can be taken standalone or as part of a programme building to a Postgraduate Certificate or Masters, are designed to meet the needs of a diverse range of practitioners who have to adapt to a changing evidence base, role transitions, and political and economic climate.

Diabetes Improving Glycaemic Control Level 7 module

This course will enable learners to critically evaluate the body of evidence for the management of diabetes (type 1 or type 2) with specific reference to improving glycaemic control.

This module contributes to the development of knowledge and understanding of the evidence that should underpin clinical practice in diabetes with regard to glycaemic control.

This module is one of two modules taken when studying for our PG Cert in Diabetes Care.

Diabetes Reducing Cardiovascular Risk Level 7 module

This module contributes to the development of knowledge and understanding of the
evidence that should underpin clinical practice in diabetes and cardiovascular risk.

This module contributes to the development of knowledge and understanding of is an emphasis on the research and evidence base; participants are encouraged to compare their findings with national and local guidelines.

This module is one of two modules taken when studying for our PG Cert in Diabetes Care.

Heart Failure Beyond the Basics Level 7 module

This module explores the management of patients with chronic heart failure within a
multi-disciplinary team. It will explore not only the management of heart failure due to left
ventricular systolic dysfunction (HF-LVSD) but will look at other conditions that impact on
the functioning of the heart and current evidence around their management.

Particular emphasis will be put on patient care pathways and their ability to meet the needs of different patient groups.

Optimising Atrial Fibrillation and Stroke Management as a Long Term Condition Level 7 module

The purpose of this module is to enable health care practitioners to develop their critical
appraisal of the evidence supporting current management of patients with atrial fibrillation
and stroke and be able to plan evidence based care providing solutions to some of the
challenges in the minimisation of the impact of these conditions on the individuals, their
relatives and the community at large.
