OzDAFNE Health Professional Workshops

OzDAFNE Health Professional Workshops 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."

The one-day workshop is aimed at health professionals involved in the direct care and support of people with type 1 diabetes. Expert OzDAFNE Facilitators will explain the OzDAFNE approach to:

  • Insulin adjustment
  • Carbohydrate counting
  • Hypoglycaemia management
  • Ketone and illness management
  • Exercise

The workshop also includes an opportunity to hear from an OzDAFNE program participant, and to learn about the accreditation and training process for OzDAFNE facilitators.*

*Please note: this workshop does not provide accreditation for running OzDAFNE programs. If you wish to deliver OzDAFNE programs, please see the DAFNE Health Professional Training page for more information.

OzDAFNE Health Professional Workshops are run regularly at Diabetes Victoria in Melbourne and Geelong, and at the Queensland Diabetes and Endocrine Centre at the Mater Hospital in Brisbane. They are also occasionally run at other locations around the country. Upcoming workshops are listed below:
