The one-day OzDAFNE Health Professional Workshop is for health professionals involved in the direct care and support of people with type 1 diabetes.
DAFNE stands for Dose Adjustment For Normal Eating and is a comprehensive education program that helps people manage their type 1 diabetes and adjust their insulin doses. It is known as OzDAFNE in Australia.
This workshop will give you the confidence to support your clients to continue to use OzDAFNE guidelines and principles after they have completed the OzDAFNE program.
One recent workshop attendee said they now have “more confidence in helping clients with insulin adjustment in relation to carbohydrates and blood glucose levels.”
Expert OzDAFNE facilitators from Diabetes Victoria will explain OzDAFNE guidelines for:
- Insulin dose adjustment
- Carbohydrate counting*
- Hypoglycaemia management
- Ketone and illness management
You will also be given the opportunity to hear from an OzDAFNE program participant, and to learn about the accreditation and training process for OzDAFNE facilitators**.
*Please note: The OzDAFNE Health Professional workshop only covers the OzDAFNE approach to carbohydrate counting. If you would like more comprehensive training in carbohydrate counting, please see our Carbohydrate Counting for Dietitians and Diabetes Educators workshop.
**Please note: The OzDAFNE Health Professional workshop does not provide accreditation for running OzDAFNE programs. For more information about the OzDAFNE Training Process, please visit the official OzDAFNE website.
