The Delivery of a training package for Health Workers to deliver patient education around IGR.
Halton Borough Council’s Public Health Department has been working with other Public Health colleagues across Merseyside to develop an intervention pathway for patients identified as having Impaired Glucose Regulation (IGR). The aim of this aspect of the project is to prevent or delay the onset of diabetes through providing patient education (via a 45 minute session) to IGR patients as part of an appropriate lifestyle intervention programme.The participating authorities wish to appoint a suitably, qualified provider to develop and deliver an IGR training package to enable identified staff (e.g. Health Trainers and Lifestyle Advisors) to deliver the patient education element of the pathway and where necessary to undertake motivational interviews and behavioural change techniques. The provider will also be required to develop an e-learning training package which staff must complete as a pre-requisite to attending the training course which it is anticipated will be for no more than one day.
