Diabetes Professional Care CPD Conference
CPD Accredited Diabetes event – free for healthcare professionals
14-15 November 2018, Olympia London
Diabetes Professional Care (DPC) is a unique, free-to-attend, CPD-accredited event for healthcare professionals (HCPs) involved in the prevention, treatment and management of diabetes, and its related conditions.
Launched in 2015, DPC meets a real and increasing need for accessible education among HCPs by arming them with the skills and knowledge to provide better care for their patients.
DPC2017 attracted a record attendance of 3,235 visitors – and DPC2018 promises to be even bigger. If you’re a professional responsible for delivering diabetes care pathways at any level, it is a useful free event to attend.
At the event you will be able to:
- Learn from experts in diabetes care
- Meet solution providers
- Network with other diabetes healthcare professionals
- Use the event for CPD
Leading industry experts attending the event and presenting include: pharmaceutical, life sciences, education, diagnostics, charity, e-health, podiatry, wound care, and diet and nutrition.
Mental Health care professionals will find talks aimed at looking at how to reduce deaths amongst people with mental health issues or disabilities. For example the team at Northumberland Tyne and Wear (NTW) NHS Foundation Trust as led a series of initiatives within the trust to improve health outcomes and reduce early death among people who are affected by mental health or disability.
Anne Moore will speak in the Diabetes Co-morbidities stream at the main DPC2018 conference on Wednesday 14 November. Her presentation is entitled: Parity of Esteem – reducing the risk and improving diabetes management for patients with a serious mental illness (SMI).
“I think the key is educating healthcare professionals who work within the diabetes field so they can know more about the impact of pharmacology and the challenges in managing mental health conditions alongside diabetes, which will ultimately improve outcomes for patients. In addition, by increasing the knowledge of effective care and treatment of diabetes for staff in mental health teams, we can provide patient-centred care.”
Anne Moore, NTW.
