The MSc Diabetes Care and Management programme equips Healthcare Professionals (HCPs) from all backgrounds with the in-depth knowledge and understanding required to deliver the best care to patients with diabetes.
The programme takes a multi-disciplinary approach to the study of diabetes, allowing integration of key discipline areas in the understanding of the biology of the disease, its diagnosis and the understanding of the complications of diabetes, their prevention and management.
It emphasises the importance of research and development in the subject area and exposes you to the latest advances in the understanding of health and disease; equipping you with the competencies to take part in active research.
Examples of research in diabetes underpinning the MSc programme include: obesity and vascular changes in type 2 diabetes; adypocyte pathophysiology in diabetes; diabetes and the feto-placental circulation; novel in-vitro methods of assessing vascular function in health and disease; the efficacy of urea cream in the control of anhidrosis in diabetic autonomic neuropathy; alteration of vascular reactivity by insulin and cortisol; effect of glucose concentration on blood vessel contractibility; and visual testing and testing of eye disease.
