Support For Health Care Professionals

The CDiC program, in collaboration with the International Society for Paediatric and Adolescent Diabetes (ISPAD), focuses on capacity building among the healthcare professionals (HCPs) to enhance their capabilities in diagnosis and treatment of children with type1 diabetes.

Many HCPs confuse management of type 1 is similar to management of type 2 diabetes. Most of the treatment protocols too focus on type 2 diabetes. The Changing Diabetes(R) in Children (CDiC) program along with 21 centre directors is helping HCPs overcome these challenges by providing continuous training through focused healthcare programs on management of children with type1 diabetes.

For medicial professionals, learning is a lifelong process. And with medical knowledge being updated regularly, accredited Continuing Medical Education (CME) plays a key role in improving knowledge and standard of medical care like never before.
