This learning module explores the challenges facing people who are newly diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and how these challenges are likely to affect how they present in primary care. The pathophysiology of the condition, signs and symptoms, the impact of diagnosis, and how care can and should be personalised to address the needs of the individual are discussed.
Don't forget that you do not have to complete our learning modules all in one go. Tailor your learning to fit into your busy schedule by undertaking one or two sections at a time. You can stop and save your learning at any point, and pick up where you left off when you return.
