BDEC Online Diabetes Learning Programme
This page gives details about the online BDEC Diabetes Learning programme, which is similar to DAFNE.
The online BDEC Diabetes Learning Programme offers background information to support the BDEC diabetes learning programme as well as acting as a stand alone resource for those unable to attend the face-to-face sessions.
Having diabetes creates many challenges and the more you understand the easier it is to interpret your blood glucose readings and adjust your insulin. The online programme discusses how insulin requirements change minute by minute, and how food, exercise, illness, and stress all affect blood glucose levels. Our aims are to:
- Enable people to more closely match their insulin to their food and lifestyle
- Enable people to manage their diabetes with fewer restrictions
- Share people's experiences with others
On the left-hand side of every screen in the online learning programme you'll find the red navigation panel. The programme has three main areas:
- Personal Profile: the place where you can manage your account and retrieve any response data you have typed into the programme
- Learning Centre: this holds the programme syllabus and all the learning activities, divided up into three modules:
- Type 1 diabetes
- Carbohydrate counting and insulin dosage
- Advanced carbohydrate counting and insulin dosage
- Resource Centre: this is a complementary website full of back-up information and useful documents. The Resource Centre always opens up as a new window, so you don't lose your place in the programme.
Finding your way around
You can use the navigation panel to link to any area of the online programme at any time.
In each module you'll find four different types of learning activity for you to try out - each one offers you something slightly different! As part of the pilot process please try out all four types of activities.
