Ascensia launches educational tool for health care professionals 

BASEL, Switzerland – Ascensia Diabetes Care has launched an online educational platform aimed at health care professionals working with people with diabetes. The [email protected] tool, which was originally piloted in September 2020, has been developed in partnership with the TUMAINI Institute in Germany, through a collaboration with Professor Peter Schwarz, a globally renowned diabetes expert. “As part of our ongoing commitment to the diabetes community, one of our priorities is to provide free educational resources to healthcare professionals that can build a greater understanding of diabetes and its management,” said Rob Schumm, president at Ascensia Diabetes Care. The platform, available in 13 countries, currently offers a total of 32 modules, all in English language, relating to various aspects of diabetes care and management. Each module includes a three to four minute introductory video, a set of educational slides and an assessment tool that enables the user to receive certification. It can be accessed via Android, Microsoft and iOS enabled devices such as smartphones, tablets and PCs.
