The number of people with type 2 diabetes is growing in Australia, most likely the result of rising overweight rates, lifestyle and dietary changes and an ageing population. Pharmacists have a vital role in diabetes management and are well placed to discuss patient self-management, monitoring, lifestyle modifications and medication management.
This workshop will review the principles used in glycaemic management according to the Australian Diabetes Society and Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) guidelines. The workshop will help pharmacist to identify the appropriate patient lifestyle modifications to optimise disease management and apply appropriate counselling strategies to improve the patient’s understanding of diabetes in order to improve and optimise health outcomes.
This topic will be a joint presentation with NHVPA and will feature a specialist guest speaker in the area of Diabetes. Facilitator: Dr Kirsten Murray and Carly Kippist
