Care L&D

About this course

Blood glucose monitoring is widely undertaken in several clinical situations, therefore this session has been designed with clinical staff in mind responsible for testing blood glucose levels and monitoring the well-being of people with low (hypoglycemia) and high (hyperglycemia) blood glucose levels.

Care Learning and Development provides a friendly relaxed environment where participants can have ample opportunity to ask questions and discuss the purpose of the monitoring and agree on how results should be interpreted and acted on.
