E-Learning platform to expand the reach of EASD’s educational goal to disseminate knowledge and proficiency in diabetes research and care worldwide.
To educate, inform and engage healthcare professionals around the world by addressing standard themes in practical diabetology as well as novel and complex themes in modern diabetology that overlap with other medical disciplines.
Comprehensive online courses divided into a series of modules which have been built and reviewed with experts from around the world and provide case based online education with engaging interactive multi-media content including expert videos, audios, animations and more.
Healthcare professionals worldwide interested in diabetes research and care.
THE FOLLOWING COURSES ARE AVAILABLE ON THE EASD E-LEARNING PLATFORM:
The value attached to real-world evidence (RWE) in clinical decision making has significantly increased in recent years. Using examples taken from diabetes treatment, this course looks at RWE.
Obesity and diabetes
This course examines the links between ectopic fat and the onset of type 2 diabetes, and how these in turn fuel cardiovascular and cardiorenal risks.
Over time, hyperglycaemia can result in damage to the nerves, with severe consequences for health – not just in the feet but all over the body. This course looks at diabetic neuropathy in all its forms.
Surgical intervention to help manage or even reverse type 2 diabetes has gained credence in recent years. This course looks at the theory and the practice.
This course examines hypoglycaemia, a complication of therapy that has a profound impact on the day-to-day lives and well-being of people who treat their diabetes with insulin.
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease
The prevalence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is on the rise. This course sets out the health implications, diagnostic challenges and potential treatments for this serious but reversible condition.
As the incidence of type 2 diabetes continues to explode worldwide, this course gets to grips with the maladapted process at its heart: insulin resistance.
Therapeutic inertia has been implicated as a significant contributory factor in suboptimal diabetes management. This course uses a Q&A format to explore the phenomenon, with particular focus on primary care.
GLP-1 receptor agonists
From obscure origins in studies of lizard saliva, GLP-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1RAs) have become a staple of type 2 diabetes treatment. This course examines the ways in which they can aid type 2 diabetes management.
Transplants of insulin-producing islets offer the hope of glucose regulation without daily insulin injections. This course looks at advances in this exciting field of diabetes treatment and the challenges still to come.
Diabetes and the Hajj
Hajj, the world’s oldest and largest mass gathering, is one of the Five Pillars of Islam. This course considers it in a clinical context, examining how people with diabetes can be supported to perform the rites safely.
This course gives you the tools you need to identify and treat diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) and to support your patients in avoiding this potentially life-threatening complication.
Introduction to the treatment and management of women with pre-existing diabetes before, during and after their pregnancy.
Time in Range
Introduction to time in range, a new concept in glycaemic management that challenges the role of HbA1c.
Introduction to the current unmet need in type 1 diabetes and explores trial data in the use of adjunct therapies including pramlintide, metformin, liraglutide and SGLT-2 inhibitors.
Hyperglycaemia in Type 2 Diabetes
Introduction to the updated 2018 ADA and EASD consensus report on the management of hyperglycaemia.
Technology and Type 1 Diabetes
This course discusses insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitoring using real life examples to help you understand how this technology works optimally.
Introduction to the epidemiology and current screening controversies of GDM. Treatment, management and the long-term follow-up of women with GDM are also covered.
Diabetes and Ramadan
Course designed to help you learn how to treat people with type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes before, during and after Ramadan.
Diabetes and the Kidney
Course created to introduce you to the diagnosis, consequences and treatment of diabetic kidney (diabetic nephropathy).
Introduction to the Pathogenesis of Type 1 Diabetes
Introduction to the mechanisms by which the autoimmune destruction of beta cells in the pancreatic islets of Langerhans occur which lead to the development of type 1 diabetes.
The Diabetic Foot
Overview of diabetic foot disease, exploring in detail some of the common characteristics and difficulties this important complication of diabetes can give rise to.
Diagnosis of Type 1 Diabetes
introduction to the epidemiology and diagnosis of type 1 diabetes as well as to encourage you to start examining the possible causes of type 1 diabetes.
Cardiovascular Health and Diabetes
Introduction to the implications diabetes can have on cardiovascular health.
