Course Overview

This Course will provide an update on insulin therapy, and the vital role insulin plays in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus.

Topics include:

  • Classes of insulin
  • Review of how carbohydrate intake impacts on glucose and insulin levels
  • Modes and uses of insulin
  • Administration of insulin via pump, pen and pre-drawn syringe

Target audience

All healthcare professionals who care for individuals with type 1 and type 2 diabetes who require insulin.


Enhance knowledge of insulin therapy by reviewing basic information about insulin, its use, and the administration for the treatment of people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus.


Insulin is required by all people with type 1 diabetes, as well as by the majority of people with type 2 diabetes after ten years' duration of the condition. It is a high-risk medicine with significant dangers if administered inappropriately. Regular review of the general principles that underlie the prescription and administration of insulin preparations for those with insulin-requiring diabetes mellitus is essential for competent nursing practice and the Quality Use of Medicines (QUM).

Health professionals in Australia that are registered with AHPRA are required to obtain continuing professional development (CPD) hours/points each year that relates to their context of practice, in order to comply with mandatory regulatory requirements.
