10-part diabetes audio series available free
The new 10-part audio series Diabetes Matters, produced by the Rural Health Education Foundation in collaboration with the Australian Diabetes Educators Association and the Australian Diabetes Society, is now available for free on CD and online.
Australian health professionals can now order a free CD set of the series, download audio files of each 20-minute program from the Foundation’s website, or listen to the programs via web streaming.
“The aim of this series is to improve the skills of health professionals in diagnosing and managing diabetes,” says Rural Health Education Foundation CEO Don Perlgut. “We’re happy to be able to distribute these 10 important programs on CD, to complement the usual free program access via our website.”
“Best practice diabetes education and management is dependent on having the latest information,” says Clair Matthews, the Executive Director of the Australian Diabetes Educators Association (ADEA), an organisation which collaborated on the series. “The free CDs of the series will help to ensure that current information, along with explanations of the latest evidence-based techniques, is distributed to as many Australian health professionals as possible.”
