Great to have guidelines and infographics throughout the training which I downloaded and put into clinical practice.

We have a lot of eLearning which can be tedious however Sanofi CARES eLearning was very good, easy to understand and follow.

I found the topic on mental health very interesting. I had not thought about the relationship between diabetes and psychological wellbeing.

Great to learn about nutrition and how people with diabetes can have a balanced diet and not a 'diabetic diet'.

Really enjoyed the course, very informative.

This programme has allowed me to carryout visits to patients to administer insulin, improving the impact on services to patient and community teams I work within.
