Diabetes Education Series

New Diabetes Webinar Series
Session 3: Diabetes Emergency – Part One

Wednesday, 1 June 2022 @ 6:30pm – 8:00pm

Registrations are now open for the third Diabetes webinar education session that will be delivered by Dr David Jesudason, MBBS, FRACP in June.


This webinar is the third in a series of six sessions based on and around diabetes management in general practice.

  1. Role of oral and weekly diabetes medications in treatment
  2. Insulin initiation and titration
  3. Diabetes emergencies Part 1
  4. Diabetes emergencies Part 2
  5. Osteoporosis and fracture as a complication of diabetes
  6. Osteoporosis management and GPs

While the sessions are complimentary, they are designed as stand-alone sessions to suit your learning needs as a rural GP.

Session 3:

This session will focus on the 2 diabetic emergencies – Diabetic ketoacidosis and Hyperosmolar Hyperglycaemic state which rural GPs may encounter and have to manage. The talk will contrast the different presentations of both of these conditions, their different causes and the differences in treatment. The talk will also discuss some of the signs of severity that may warrant transfer to a tertiary hospital. 

Learning outcomes

  1. Differentiate diabetic ketoacidosis from hyperosmolar hyperglycaemic state.
  2. Identify the differences in management of diabetic ketoacidosis and hyperosmolar hyperglycaemic state.
  3. Determine the signs of severity of diabetic ketoacidosis and hyperosmolar hyperglycaemic state


This webinar meets the criteria for RACGP QI and CPD Program Accredited Activities and ACRRM Professional Development Program. Certificates will be issued to attendees.
