The Cambridge Diabetes Education Programme was designed and tested by a multi-disciplinary diabetes specialist team consisting of nurses, dietitians, podiatrists, health care assistants, general practitioners and hospital consultants.
Based on UK nationally recognised diabetes competency frameworks in nursing, dietetics and podiatry for healthcare practitioners, CDEP supports all levels of staff have the right diabetes skills and knowledge relevant to their role.
The various UK diabetes competency frameworks CDEP utilises can be viewed via the below links:
CDEP's content is continually reviewed and further developed to ensure the learning opportunities offered are evidence-based, up-to-date and relevant to the target audience. CDEP's outcomes are routinely audited to ensure we are meeting healthcare practitioners' needs.
A series of competency based questions are asked. Answer correctly and progress through the program. Credible resources are provided for questions incorrectly answered. Consistent with competency-based education, 100% mastery is required. The program is divided into Topics and Competencies derived from UK competency frameworks in diabetes.
CDEP supports health professional's confidence allowing them to quickly work through areas they already know, however exposing other areas that may benefit from further learning or refreshing skills or knowledge is required - making it easier for staff to focus their diabetes-related study while demonstrating areas of excellent practice..
CDEP's content is regularly reviewed, evidence-based, up-to-date and clinically relevant to the target audience. CDEP's outcomes are routinely audited to ensure we are meeting healthcare practitioners needs.
Over 8000 certificates have now been generated following the successful completion of a topic.
Impressively, 99.8% of our CDEP users report that undertaking a CDEP topic either confirms their high level of diabetes knowledge (13.6%) or alternatively supports an improvement in their diabetes knowledge (86.2%).
For those reporting an improvement, the breakdown across our 3 outcomes domains is as follows:
