The Ministry of Public Health (MOPH), in collaboration with Hamad Medical Corporation's (HMC) Qatar Metabolic Institute (QMI) and Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC), has launched early this month an online-integrated diabetes care education program for primary healthcare providers. The program is part of the efforts being made by Qatar National Diabetes Strategy 2016-2022 implementation team.
The accredited continuing professional development (CPD) program, which has been launched under the title "Integrated Diabetes Care", aims at primary care physicians, nurses and health educators for diabetes. The program will run for one year and includes 25, one-hour sessions that are delivered through Microsoft Teams. Each session is a stand-alone webinar, with participants able to complete as many sessions as are of interest. The maximum number of healthcare professionals who can attend each session is 200 persons.
Professor Abdul-Badi Abou-Samra, Co-Chair of the National Diabetes Committee and Director of Qatar Metabolic Institute (QMI), has said the program aims to provide healthcare professionals in the primary healthcare settings with the tools they need to provide integrated diabetes care that is tailored to the needs of each patient.
