    Graduate Certificate of Diabetes Studies

    The Graduate Certificate of Diabetes Studies gave me the confidence and knowledge to provide person-centred education, including diabetes prevention and management. The course was flexible so I could fit it around my family and work life. The lecturer was friendly, encouraging and always responsive to my questions.

    Graduate Certificate of Diabetes Studies

    I use the knowledge gained from the Graduate Certificate of Diabetes Studies in every day of my dietetic clinical practice. I loved the motivational interviewing module as it taught me the importance of collaborative planning to optimise a patient's health outcomes. I couldn't recommend this course highly enough!
