We've changed the way you complete courses

In response to user feedback we have simplified the way courses can be completed.

Until now you needed to complete the topics and modules in order, from start to finish. But from today you can complete them in any order you wish.

Just visit any topic that interests you, and when you are ready mark it as completed by clicking the green 'Mark complete' button at the bottom of the page.

Once you have completed all of the topics in a module an assessment will be provided for you.

Complete all the assessments to finish the course.

Welcome to the course on diabetic ketoacidosis

This course gives you the tools you need to identify and treat diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) and to support your patients in avoiding this potentially life-threatening complication.

DKA is typically associated with type 1 diabetes and remains one of the major causes of death in children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes. However, it also occurs in people with type 2 diabetes. The first module in this course is designed to help you understand the pathogenesis of DKA and how to diagnose it. In module 2, we move on to how DKA should be managed, describing and analysing in detail the latest guidelines on DKA management to be published in the UK and the USA. Module 3 sets out the common precipitating factors that may lead to DKA and highlights the essential role patient and family education play in its prevention. Module 4 looks at the particular challenges involved in diagnosing and treating DKA in children and young people with diabetes.
