International Diabetes Federation Commits to Improving Diabetes Education Globally Through Centres of Education
Date:6/1/2008

governments and health professionals. In 2002, the Section published the International Curriculum for Diabetes Health Professional Education and in 2006 produced 19 modules of presentation slides based on them. In addition, the Federation has developed education courses based on the curriculum and has held 14 Multidisciplinary Diabetes Professional Programmes throughout the world. In 2003, IDF published the International Standards for Diabetes Education which serves as a basis for the development of quality diabetes education services. It guides healthcare providers in such areas as leadership, communication, documentation, the need for ongoing professional education, and physical requirements to be able to provide services, evaluation and research.

To meet the growing demand for diabetes education knowledge and expertise and to build capacity worldwide, IDF will designate its Centres of Education in local institutions which already have the knowledge and experience in providing diabetes education. The institutions selected by IDF will form part of an international collaborative voluntary network to initiate, facilitate, conduct and coordinate high-quality education for healthcare professionals in diabetes and other related chronic diseases.

An institution is designated as an IDF Centre of Education for an initial term of four years. The designation may be renewed for another four years or a shorter period. An IDF Centre of Education may be jointly designated by the International Diabetes Federation and another competent and specialized international body, such as the World Health Organization (WHO). Designation of centres is independent of financial support. Centres will face continuous monitoring and evaluation by IDF.

Institutions making an application to become an IDF Centre of Education will be required to conduct workshop-based programmes for health professionals training for a minimum of 40 to 50 students per year, either at national or
