As a centre for award winning training, the DESMOND Programme now has a number of training days available, including our DESMOND 1-day Core training which looks at the philosophy, theories and behaviours that underpin all of our modules. This training is the first step in all Educator training and is also available for anyone looking to find out more about the DESMOND Programme and what makes it stand apart from other diabetes education programmes or for those looking to develop their own education programme or just for general interest.
The DESMOND Collaborative is delighted to announce the launch of a new set of evidence based Quality Development Tools. Extensive research by Dr Sue Cradock has resulted in the development of a new set of Quality Development Tools (QD Tools) including a new Core Behaviours Assessment Tool. This will now be used by QD Assessors and Educators to more accurately capture and meaningfully reflect on behaviours used during the delivery of the DESMOND modules.
