This CPD module provides an update on the microvascular complications of diabetes — nephropathy, retinopathy, and peripheral and autonomic neuropathies — and their prevention.
It includes information on how these problems arise, risk factors for their development, and how they are monitored and managed.
The module also identifies opportunities for community pharmacy teams to optimise care for people with diabetes through brief interventions or signposting.
