The ADEA Diabetes Research Foundation has approved a $60,000 Research Fellowship to Ms Giuliana Murfet who will develop a diabetes care capability framework for health professionals with different levels of skills and knowledge.
The framework provides a set of nine broad capability areas that address, among others, diabetes self-management education, technology and the quality use of medicines. The framework will aim to provide a national minimum level of competencies for different health professional levels for course developers to include within their program development.
Donate to the ADEA Diabetes Research Foundation to support more practical diabetes research like this.
