Service development case studies

Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

Diabetes & Wellbeing were commissioned to carry out diabetes training needs analysis for Practice Nurses in Poole.

A questionnaire was designed to capture self-declared information about role, formal education in diabetes, knowledge, skills and confidence.

The aim of the exercise was to identify training needs and facilitate the development of a programme of education and mentorship for practice nurses across Dorset CCG.

In-depth analysis of the questionnaire results were used to produce a comprehensive report with recommendations for Healthcare Professional training.
