Program structure and benefits

Online delivery allows for flexible learning times as well as easy access to a relaxed, easy to follow program designed to engage learners and provide them with a rich learning experience. The exT1D e-learning content promotes development and enhancement of in-clinic patient education skills and provides teaching aids to enhance the educator/patient interaction to achieve effective patient Type 1 Diabetes self-management outcomes for exercise and sport.

The exT1D e-learning system combines science and lived experience to provide education specifically designed to increase the capacity of Diabetes Health Care Professionals to achieve improved patient outcomes. It provides a conceptual understanding of the physiological challenges as well as current best practice self-management strategies for exercising and playing sport with Type 1 Diabetes. The information it contains empowers diabetes health care professionals to predict the impact of different exercise and sports scenarios on glucose homeostasis and provides a range of potential management strategies to allow patients with Type 1 Diabetes to engage successfully in exercise and sports with confidence and safety without compromising glycaemic control. The course content is presented using audio visual multimedia in a format that provides ‘plain English’ explanations to facilitate immediate transference of management skills to patients with Type 1 Diabetes.

The course content is presented within a modular framework, program modules are broken down into easily digestible chunks of individually indexed slide components. The modules provide essential information which is reinforced and assessed using whole program pre and post knowledge assessment quizzes. Also included are intra module knowledge quizzes as well as pencil and paper learning activities to ensure information is understood as the learner progresses. In addition, the system contains helpful software tools to provide practical assistance to Diabetes Health Care Professionals as well as the Type 1 patient that facilitate implementation of concepts communicated.

Fantastic website Allan! I can personally say, how much information, research and effort you have put into this fabulous project is impressive indeed… I will recommend your website not only to people who have type 1 diabetes but also to my colleagues. WELL DONE!

Allan, Please don’t give up on this project, what you have put together is awesome, you should be proud!

I just wanted to let you know that I have spent quite a time, not as much as I would like, on the website and I think it is extremely good. I have recommended it to a number of patients recently and will continue to recommend it.

Doing the exT1D learning modules has been money worth spending and has not only reinforced what I already knew but filled in the gaps of what I thought I knew… Well done Allan, the work and passion you have put into this and continue to do so is a credit to the ‘diabetes world’… this is a practical resource for both the person living with Diabetes and the professional assisting.
