Event description

Description

Due to COVID-19, this program will be delivered online via Zoom conferencing.

People managing diabetes using insulin therapy benefit from dietary education in relation to their carbohydrate intake and timing of meals and snacks.

This program will provide an overview of how you can help clients identify and understand the impact of their dietary choices on their blood glucose and the relationship to insulin therapy.

The afternoon will be facilitated by experienced Accredited Practising Dietitians who work with clients managing type 1 and type 2 diabetes using various insulin regimes including insulin pumps.

Registered health professionals working with clients using insulin therapy, in particular practice nurses and recently graduated diabetes educators and dietitians are encouraged to attend.

Please note: teaching carbohydrate counting skills is not the focus of this program.

Topics will include:

  • Identifying carbohydrate in food and beverages.

  • Suggested distribution of carbohydrates across meals and snacks in relation to different insulin therapy regimes

  • When and what to suggest to clients regarding carbohydrate counting

  • Available client resources

  • Practical case study examples of people managing T1 and T2 diabetes on different insulin regimes.

Some attendees may also be interested in attending the Initiating insulin therapy workshop which is scheduled 9.00am - 12.00noon on the same day (Full fee: $150; Early bird $125). You can register for both events and receive a combined ticket discount by selecting the relevant ticket type (Full fee: $250; Early bird: $200).
