NHS Diabetes launches new Safe Use of Non-Insulin Therapies e-learning module
NHS Diabetes is delighted to launch the much-anticipated new Safe Use of Non-Insulin Therapies (SUNIT) e-learning module. This free module urges healthcare professionals to:
- Always tailor glycaemic targets to the individual.
- Check specific manufacturers guidance when using therapies in people with diabetes and chronic kidney disease.
- Always consider the risk of hypoglycaemia when using specific medicines in the elderly.
- Check the NICE guidance CG 87 when considering which medication to prescribe.
Helen Wilkinson, NHS Diabetes Programme Manager for Safety, said: "This course is an exciting new module packed full of essential information for healthcare professionals who are involved with service users relying on non-insulin therapies.
"I am thrilled with the development of this course and hope this will be as helpful as our previous two e-learning modules."
To order copies of the new Safe Use of
Non-insulin Therapies card please email Olivia Winchester: firstname.lastname@example.org
