Dear Pharmacist

Advancing Diabetes care Excellence through Pharmacy Team Training (ADEPT): Pharmacists leading diabetes excellence in their community

The West Midlands Diabetes Expert Advisory Group and Sustainability Transformation Partnerships (STPs) are looking to develop new approaches to Diabetes Care in the community and to enhance workforce skills to provide new services. The ADEPT programme has been developed by clinical experts and aims to support improving diabetes care outcomes based on NDA, NICE and Diabetes UK standards.  You can find out more about the programme here.

NHS England have commissioned Coventry University to support delivery of ADEPT across the West Midlands, which is provided  free of charge for community pharmacists working in the West Midlands STPs.

The programme will enable you to:

  • Confidently formulate and implement an evidence-based, multi-factorial, patient-centred Diabetes Care Plan
  • Promote knowledge, skills and attitudes in Patients that supports patient empowerment towards high standards of diabetes care.
  • Continue as trained HCPs in diabetes care and undertake relevant continuing professional development activities to embed knowledge and skills into routine clinical practice
  • Be at the forefront of future service developments for delivering diabetes care within the community as required by the Diabetes Transformation Project.

The course is 6 weeks in duration and can be accessed entirely online (self-directed study), or with the option to attend face to face sessions on Week 1 and Week 6 at venues across the West Midlands. Support is provided by academic healthcare professionals at Coventry University, either via the portal, email or face to face tutorials. Self-directed study is guided by teaching aids and study material on the portal, and quizzes enable progress to be self-monitored.

To confirm and recognise learning delegates will be asked to submit a written case study up to 3 months after completing the programme, for review.
