    hi my name Is Olga and I am a credentialled diabetes educator. I have a nurse background and have a grad cert in diabetes education. The only professions that I know who become diabetes educators are nurse, podiatrist and dieticians, however I may be wrong. For your enquiry I suggest you go on line to the Australian Diabetes Educators Association (ADEA), who will give you more info in this inquiry.

    hi my name is Carol and i am also a Credentialled diabetes Educator. Pharmacists are able to do the course at University as a post grad program. You would be best advised by searching on line for the nearest course available near you. You would need to be working as the intake for students undertaking the course is high and preference is given to those working in the field with diabetes related work like a pharmacy that would be seeing clients for medication reviews etc. I hope that helps somewhat.

    Can any registered pharmacist apply to become a CDE? I was just reading on the ADEA website that Registered Pharmacists who are also accredited by either the Australian Association of Consultant Pharmacy or the Society of Hospital Pharmacists Australia to conduct medication management reviews are eligible.
